Leeds. Home of many musicians; Kaiser Chief, Mel B, Soft Cell and of course Alt-J. Now home to Marsicans who have just released a new track. This is their grungiest track to date both musically and from a performance perspective due to its mix of happy little hooks and harmonies that have helped form what is the current Leeds quartet. These guys have a care free way of making music yet have such a serious work ethic. They really know what they’re doing and do it in a fun way yet, making music is serious business to them which is something to be admired.
Not only that but these guys have been touring non-stop this year. Teaming up with the likes of Hippo Campus, Clean Cut Kid and JAWS on tour they have been all over the UK and Europe. With their previous single ‘Friends’ making it to the Radio 1 weekly playlist and generating a large number of online streams there is serious potential for Marsicans to suddenly blow up.
The track itself entitled ‘Throw Ourselves In’ meshes a lust for life and a need to turn everything up to 11. This care free pleasure in the form of a classic indie rock track is what makes them that little bit more special. Wonderland have given nothing but praise to the band saying that it’s time to ‘Fall in love with your new fave band’ where as Clash said that the track is ‘Wholly infectious’. Which I couldn’t agree more with
While only taking grunge as a concept and turning it into a cute little indie song is nice and all these guys seem to make it just… work. Many others have tried and failed but these guys seem to have more or less nailed it, with the underlying bass and scuzz giving it that little extra edge to it all.
The track is currently available on all digital platforms and the band are going on tour this month. With their next date on 24th November in Liverpool supporting JAWS its bound to be a big event. Especially as its two amazing bands in one venue.
