Leeds indie-pop quartet Marsicans drop grungiest cut to date ‘Throw Ourselves In’ and announce highest profile headline tour
Marsicans ~ ‘Throw Ourselves In’
“catchy blast of energy” Consequence of Sound – “exuberant” DORK – “refreshing break from cookie-cutter alt-rock” EARMILK – “Wholly infectious” Clash – “carefree pleasure” – The 405 “Fall in love with your new fave band”Wonderland
Their grungiest cut to date, Marsicans turn everything up to 11 on live-favourite Throw Ourselves In. Liberal use of scuzz and cymbals accompany the ever-present joyful hooks and harmonies that have come to define this Leeds quartet.
Stepping it up with every release, the band combine their infectious carefree attitude with a serious work –ethic. Touring basically the entire way through 2017, across the UK and Europe, with the likes of Hippo Campus, Clean Cut Kid and JAWS (coming up through November), has reaped its rewards. Previous single Friends made the Radio 1 weekly playlist, and follow-up Too Good again got spins on Radio 1 amongst other national stations, alongside millions of streams online.
This lust for live will also be taking Marsicans on their highest-profile headline tour to date in March 2018, show details below.
Marsicans are James Newbigging (lead vocals and guitar), Oliver Jameson (guitar and vocals), Rob Brander (bass, keyboards and lead vocals) and Matthew ‘Cale’ McHale (drums and vocals).
Throw Ourselves In is available on all digital platforms for streaming and download from 3rd November, and is the latest in a string of releases on LAB Records.
