🎈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 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...

BIRMINGHAM - Sunflower Lounge, 01.03.18

Marsicans are stars on the rise. The band's ability to seamlessly meld genres and sounds displays a sophistication in their talent...their poppy attitudes and genuine exuberance display their youth.

- Birmingham Live

LONDON - Borderline, 02.03.18

Two of the crowd’s favourites, Arms of Another and Swimming, brought with them absolute madness, with the entire room jumping and dancing around.

Bristol - Louisiana, 03.03.18

Marsicans sound like a band who really enjoy their craft...their energy is untouchable.

GLASGOW - Garage (Attic Bar), 07.03.18

MASSIVE THANKS to French blogs, Sound of Brit and JustFocus for reviewing our first gig in France at L'international, Paris. Photographer Emma-Jane Brown also posted this collection of photos from the night. 

We had an amazing time in front of a great crowd. Incredible to have people in another country singing along to our songs and we'll never forget the bi-lingual rendition of Happy Birthday, sung for our James. Merci, Paris! 🎈

The stage is set and Marsicans arrive around 10:20 pm. 40 mins are on the program. No pause, no room for sadness. Marsicans are there to make us dance, jump and scream. Aided by effective compositions like "Gone in a Second", which serves as opening track, the quartet puts the audience in the pocket quickly. I...

THANK YOU, Hannah Mason of Leeds student paper The Gryphon for the review of our recent sold-out night at the Brudenell Social Club.

KIND WORDS about Friday's sold-out 360 Club gig from all sorts of kind folk:

"Balls-out drumbeats, severe bass and pirhouetting, spangly guitar lines... Their confidence and energy is exceptional and the ample crowd are more than appreciative as their disco beats and top-drawer, barked-out harmonies ring out... Disgustingly fun." Vibrations Magazine

"Insanely grin-inducing...the Leeds four-piece’s shimmering, sun-kissed indie-pop is joyful, unadulterated the Beach Boys went to town on Paul Simon’s large stash of speed." Bang The Drum Magazine

“Chanting back their charming lyrics, the home crowd no doubt enhanced their tight performance creating a brillia...

It's their sold-out homecoming gig and the crowd is singing back every word of every song...If catchy pop hooks were criminal, Marsicans would be wanted men.
