Diving straight into the strong and driving rock influences, Sydney’s Marvell are back with another bright single for 2020 in ‘19 Homes’. The track comes at a turning point for the group, as they anticipate a brand new chapter for the band looking ahead at new music.
For fans of bands including Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters or Boy and Bear, Marvell have distilled a charming, rogue-ish energy into the new single, making ‘19 Homes’ an immensely fun track to sink one’s teeth into. A familiar sound for those schooled up on the five-piece’s raucous style, ‘19 Homes’ is also a perfect introduction for any newcomers to the Marvell fold.
Recorded with award-winning producer and composer Jan Skubiszewski (John Butler, Dan Sultan) out at Red Moon Studios in the Macedon Ranges, ‘19 Homes’ is a result of sessions spent refining and continuing to define the sonic identity of the band. Off the back of March’s ‘Brainwash’ release, and with more music still in the wings, ‘19 Homes’ provides a great snapshot of where the band is now.
Pouring a love of classic songwriting in with fresh and contemporary indie-rock influences, Marvell’s music is grounded in melody and emotional storytelling. Between brothers Max and Tom Marvell’s distinctive vocals and a rhythm section that is relentless in its energy, Marvell is coming through stronger than ever as the music community continues to rebuild and take steps back into the spotlight, as lockdown restrictions ease.
The band worked with director Tom Muir and producer Daniel Pollock in bringing the music video for ‘19 Homes’ together – taking the idea of an open house and turning it on its head, flourishing into a fun, house party setting instead. Yearning for the time where we can do it again in real time, the video serves as a little substitute for what is on the horizon.
