🎈JAMES CHATTED to BBC News about headlining the BBC Music Introducing stage at Reading Festival & Leeds Festival this weekend.

Luckily, he managed to keep his cool. "The singer/guitarist admits he's been practicing his best rock 'n' roll 'foot on the monitor' pose for the latest big occasion. 'It's what the audience wants and deserves.' " 😂

THANKS AGAIN to Huw Stephens for giving Throw Ourselves In another spin on BBC Radio 1! 🎈

RADIO 1 PLAYLIST! After numerous plays on BBC national radio courtesy of Huw Stephens Phil Taggart, Tom Robinson and regionally via Alan Raw and Jono Brine, we're delighted to see that Friends has made this week's BBC Radio 1 playlist, alongside Bruno Mars, Drake and our old pals Catfish & the Bottlemen. Thanks to everyone whose given it a spin, particularly Huw for making it his Tip Of The Week on his BBC Introducing show a few weeks ago and getting the whole ball rolling! 🎈

LAST NIGHT, our favourite Welshman Huw Stephens was kind enough to premiere Absence on his BBC Radio 1 show, the fourth Marsicans track played by the BBC Introducing guru this year - we are forever grateful!

Absence is the lead track from our upcoming EP, out later this month (details to follow shortly). A live performance of the song filmed on Glastonbury's BBC Introducing stage was included in their Best of Sunday festival highlights in June. 

 A WEEK AFTER playing our live version of Absence from Glastonbury, Huw Stephens gave Far Away (Saudade) his seal of approval with a spin on Radio 1 last night.

Along with Swimming, that's the third song from our upcoming EP to have made it onto those mighty R1 airwaves this year thanks to the lovely Welshman!
