[POST UPDATED OCT 22]

SCHOOL NIGHT IS BACK. We're teaming up with our mates at Emily Pilbeam (BBC Introducing, Radio 1), Scruff of the Neck and CloseUp Promotions to bring you 3 crazy cool nights at Oporto this autumn; each one packed live bands and banger-to-banger DJ sets from yyyyyyy'boys and special guest DJs. As always, early arrivals get a free JD & coke for their troubles.🎈

Our next night, curated by CloseUp Promotions, is Wed 1 Nov headlined by Stockport's other indie-pop band No Hot Ashes with support from Leeds baes Heir and Hows Harry. We'll be manning the decks to spin some fresh bangers. You've been warned.

A LOVELY TIME was had at CloseUp Promotions' annual all-day festival in London last week. So many great artists on one day! Big thanks to Indie Central Music for the kind words below... 🎈

"Lively, sweaty and full of energy, Marsicans knew how to wow their crowd in style...one of the hottest bands around at the moment."

To the untrained eye, April may have looked like a quiet month in the world of Marsicans but, in the words of the current World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen, "Marsicans have had a really busy month". Boy is he right! 

After the highs of our Friends headline tour, which took us around this fine island we call home, we hibernated away into our rehearsal room in the search of new music. Despite our love for playing live, we had a great few weeks arguing over what new chords we could use to further our quest for musical synergy. However, as the circle of life dictates, we were soon ready to play live again. 

In preparation for our show at Live at Leeds, we headed over to York for a show at City Screen, a cool underground venue on the riverfront. My...

We’ve had a lot of good months in Marsicanland recently, but this month has been summin’ else! I always thought Tellytubbyland was the place to be when I was a kid but then I realised that there were fully grown adults running around in those suits and Noo-Noo was actually a girl on a tricycle. Come to think of it, we do dress ourselves in similarly colourful outfits. So, I guess Marsicanland is a veiled effort to hold onto the childhood dreams that Tellytubbyland provided (for me at least). Anyway, it’s doing a pretty good job and let me tell you why.

Since releasing our first single of the year, we’ve had a ton of support from some of our favourite radio DJs including the main man Huw Stephens who made Friends his Tip of the Week, Phil Tagga...

AHEAD of our Brighton show with CloseUp Promotions, Oli chatted to Ticketweb UK about profiteroles, sculpture and Arctic Monkeys rip-offs.

- Record Of The Day

"Top notch drumming and guitar riffs, vocals and harmonies – perfect!"

"Marsicans create an inescapable buzz that doesn’t let go...imagine a heavier Paul Simon amongst some Hot Club de Paris and Little Comets...truly uplifting."

COLOSSAL THANKS to the BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens, Radio X's John Kennedy, the team at Amazing Radio and all the online stations from Siberia to Scunthorpe who played Swimming, as well as all the bloggers below who took time to listen and write a few kind words about it. We'll be back with more very soon!

 

"Crafted for the perfect sun-drenched playlist."

-When The Gramophone Rings

 

"An unabashed serotonin-fuelled summer anthem, throwing together a bit of wonky pop with pounding punk-lite and blissful surf band harmonies."

KIND WORDS from kind people reviewing Arms Of Another:

 

"Celebratory and fulfilling..."
It's All Indie

 

"Muggy pop heat and plucky indie rock lustre...like The 1975 and Two Door Cinema Club rolled into one."
I Heart Moosiq

Bang The Drum Magazine

 

"Marsicas mesh their infectious songwriting with an upbeat sound similar to the likes of Foals, and Circa Waves."

- CloseUp
