Since then, Marnie performed as the lead singer of the band, and also played synthesizers and contributed to songwriting. During its existence the band released five albums (604, Light & Magic, Witching Hour, Velocifero and Gravity the Seducer) and earned international recognition thank to such singles as Playgirl, Seventeen, Destroy Everything You Touch, Ghosts and Ace of Hz. At the moment, the team is on sabbatical. In 2012 Helen Marnie started her solo career.

On 29 May 2013, Marnie premiered on her official YouTube account the music video directed by Michael Sherrington for her debut single as solo artist, "The Hunter".
‘The Hunter’ was later released as a single, with remixes by Roman Nouza, Mark Reeder and Stephen Morris (Joy Division / New Order) on a twelve-inch vinyl in limited edition. The new track ‘Wolves’ will be released on a seven-inch vinyl in April 2015.
