🎈WHOA! WHOA! WHOA! After thanking Radio 1, Radio X, Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing, MTV, C4 Sunday Brunch, Kerrang (!) TV, Made In Chelsea, Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Amazon Music and VEVO, we still have to tip our hats off to all the bloggers out there, who keep busting out the reviews for scant reward, apart from RSI and tinnitus. Your sweet scribblings about Your Eyes took us to #3 on Hype Machine's Most Blogged Artists - THANK YOU! 😘
🎈YOU DID IT AGAIN, LIVE AT LEEDS! We had an absolute blast yesterday. 💥
Thanks to all for the kind words below...
"Leeds’ own homegrown band Marsicans made their city proud as they performed a coveted slot at the O2 Academy for this year’s festival. With a debut album still on the horizon, the indie-pop quartet performed their bright tunes including ‘Suburbs,’ ‘Pop Ups (Sunny At The Weekend),’ and ‘Too Good,’ causing a mosh pit every corner of the packed 2,300 capacity venue."
"Marsicans set the venue alight during their set...it was impossible not to be swept up by the band’s more insurgent new material, tracks that will surely define them as one of the nation’s most treasured new indie bands in the coming months."
🎈WHAT A BLAST we had on the road with the BBC/Good Karma Club's Abbie McCarthy, Childcare, Lucia and a shit-ton of ace opening acts. Everything about these shows exceeded our expectations, including the nightly Wispa Gold count - thank you for fattening us up for Summer 2019! (Birmingham, you won with 67 btw.) 🍫
As always, special shout-out to all the reviewers and photographers who turned out to snap and write up. Some lovely work from you below...
updated 18 August 2018 THANK YOU to all the ace, passionate people who take the time to listen and write about new music, and especially to those who helped make us number 2 on Hype Machine's Top 10 Most Blogged Artists the week after we released Pop-Ups (Sunny at the Weekend). 🎈
Here's a selection of the kind comments we've had...
"Seasonally spot-on loveliness from the rising Leeds band."
VIDEO. We chatted to Georgia from Popped Music ahead of our Manchester show at The Deaf Institute last month about our fave teenage bands and tea bag pincers. Warning: includes snippet of unseen live footage. 😱 🎈
