Summer is over and Autumn has arrived (or so I'm told by Paul The Weather Man from popular BBC drama 'The News'). Soon the leaves will begin to fall from the trees and I will once again be able to wear all of my clothes instead of just some of them. Honestly, I've got a really nice coat that I haven't worn in ages, I could not be more excited to throw that bad boy over my feminine shoulders and strut. Right now though, I suppose I'd better tell you all about what we've been up to over the last month...

Firstly, we announced LOADS of shows in the UK and we are buzzing to get back out on the road. Piling into Pat, our beloved van, and traversing this country's many motorways is what we live for. We can't wait to see you all and have a party. Oli's...

DELIGHTED TO SEE that Far Away, our preview track from the upcoming Absence EP, freshly streaming on Spotify as of today, had made the prestigious New Music Friday playlist. as well as Deezer's Brand New Music UK playlist

NEW VIDEO. A few weeks ago, we recorded a special version of ‪Far Away (Saudade) with strings at the Old Seacroft Chapel, Leeds. We loved it so much we've decided to include it as a bonus track on our upcoming EP. 

Massive thanks to Chris Cook for arranging the strings, to Hannah, Madie and Robyn for performing with us, to Ed Heaton for recording, to Chapel FM for hosting and to Sandy and Ben at Little Less Known for capturing the whole thing so beautifully on film. 

Hope you like!

GRATEFUL for the awesome response and kind words being said about Far Away (Saudade), some of which we've quoted below. The track will be out very soon on our upcoming EP release. 

"A gloriously off-kilter summer nugget."

- Clash Magazine

"Tight, confident blend of catchy alt-pop that’s rammed with melodies and powers along with a summery groove"

- Record Of The Day

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

- Fresh On The Net

"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."

- Hidden Herd

"Ablaze with striking addictive hooks and quirky lyrics...all wrapped in sweet luxurious melodies, sprinkled with lush harmonies."

Hi there. Your pal Ol here.

I’m writing this blog on July 19, the hottest day of the year so far. "Wow! it’s so warm" has been the opener to each conversation I have had with every single person today. Lucky for me- I spent the majority of the day in a room with three other boys away from sunlight, so not many people had to endure such predictable small talk. Lucky for you- we’re still hard at work preparing a load of cool stuff to come your way so so soon.

Since Cale’s last eccentric blog update we’ve done a lot, it seems. First off, the good people at Clash Magazine unveiled a new track from our upcoming EP, describing Far Away (Saudade) as a "gloriously off-kilter summer nugget". Now, if those words were used to describe a confectionary item,...

 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!

OUR OLD PAL John Kennedy gave Far Away (Saudade) its first national radio play in the UK on his X-posure show last night. 

John gave us our first national airplay of 2016 when he latched on to Arms Of Another in January shortly before inviting us down to play his Remedy live showcase the Tooting Tram and Social Club. 

What a gent!
