Marsicans ~ ‘Too Good’
“The irreverent indie-pop group deal in carefree pleasure, but articulate themselves with tighter musicianship and cleverer time signatures than that description initially suggests” The 405
“catchy blast of energy” Consequence of Sound – “exuberant” DORK – “refreshing break from cookie-cutter alt-rock” EARMILK – “Wholly infectious” Clash – “press play again and again and again” tmrw
Once again finding that sweet spot between upbeat indie and dirty-pop, Marsicans’ new single, ‘Too Good’, showcases the band’s trademark harmonies over a toe-tapping groove. Backed by scything guitar and flowery synth flourishes, this is a dreamy ode to love that feels just right for festival season.
Miles on from the early incarnation of raw 18 year-olds opening for an up-and-coming Catfish & The Bottlemen at a small venue in Wakefield, the band build further into what has been their busiest year to date. In the first six months of 2017 alone the four-piece have signed to LAB Records and X-ray Touring, released the acclaimed single Friends -which made the BBC Radio 1 weekly playlist – as well as undertaking four separate tours (9 shows in the Netherlands and France, 5 shows supporting Minnesota’s Hippo Campus on their UK tour, a 9-date UK headline tour and a 17-date UK tour supporting label-mates Natives).
They also recently played to packed rooms at Live At Leeds, Brighton’s Great Escape, Manchester’s Dot-To-Dot festivals and have half a dozen other UK festival appearances over the summer, plus tour dates with Clean Cut Kid lined up for October.
All the while their 2016 Absence EP quietly clocked up 1 million plays. With another electric single under their belts, there’s no sign of the Marsicans wave of momentum slowing down.
‘Too Good’ is available on all digital platforms for streaming and download from Friday 28 July, and is the latest in a string of releases on LAB Records.
