In November 2004, Cyclops Records held open auditions for female singers aged 18 to 22. After several rounds of auditions, the record label casted Katrina Roköshort, Katia Charkölarssen, Sabina Tomötimosen, Elena Draakömandig, and Tatiana Eriköhellman as members of Marlina. The group debuted together in public in January 2005.

In June 2005, they released their debut single as a group, "I've Been Waiting for This Night", an anthemic and upbeat Lashpop song. The song was a massive success, peaking at number-one in four countries. Their debut studio album, Naughty & Nice, was released the following year. It also produced the hit singles "Walk on Water", "Invincible", "Far from Here", and "I'm with You".

In a 2007 interview, group member Tomötimosen stated in an interview that the group had begun working on their second studio album. In a later interview, Charkölarssen stated "The new album is more us. We had more creative control over this one, and we're really happy to share it with all of you".

They released the album's lead single, "All Fired Up", in October 2008. The song was a huge success, and was certified 3x platinum in their home country. Their second studio album, Feel My Heartbeat was later released in June 2009. It also contained the hit singles "Icebreaker", "Look What You've Done", "If Love Was a Crime", and "Color My Life".

Following the competition of their Asmatic tour supporting Feel My Heartbeat, the group announced that they'd be going on a brief hiatus in order to focus on their family lives and solo careers.

The hiatus was ended in 2014, when it was announced that the group would be given a residency show in the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino located in Kesa for one-year. Each member's salary was reported to be $50,000 per each daily show. They performed their last show in August 2015. Following their residency show's ending, the group revealed that they have begun work on their third studio album.

In 2016, they were announced as participant in Mösikalifestivali 2017, with the song "Touch". They advanced directly from the fourth semi-final, to the final, where they later placed second. "Touch" peaked at number-two in Lashardia.

They released the lead single to their upcoming third studio album, "Camo Baby", in April 2017. The song peaked at number-four on the Lashardian singles chart.
