🎈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! 😘
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...
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 fun...like the Beach Boys went to town on Paul Simon’s large stash of speed." Bang The Drum Magazine
Thanks to all who came and packed out The Fav on Sat afternoon -our 3rd and favourite L@L to date!
The band drawing the crowd were Marsicans, who sounded as if Kings Of Leon had, after all that Sex On Fire shit, decided to record their next album in Jamaica, on speed, and had a bloody good time doing it.
The Leeds three-piece are purveyors of the kind of up-beat, danceable, African hi life-inflected indie that Vampire Weekend might produce if they weren't so studiously concerned with the correct use of the Oxford comma.
Thanks to those of you who've bought or listened to Chivalry since it came out a couple of weeks ago. Some fine folk even bothered to blog about it:
Marsicans are a group from Leeds who play bright indie pop. Imagine Vampire Weekend if they’d grown up in England. -SupajamFull review
A great song. Fun and inviting indie pop/ indie rock with great instrumentation…Reminds me of San Cisco, The Wombats, and Cub Sport. All great bands to sound like. -Music BeardsFull review
If only every morning started as bright and breezy as Chivalry. Irresistibly infectious, Marsicans showcase their impetuous and elevated rhythms in fine detail as they continue to deliver super fun, attentive Indie-Pop songs. -Scientists of SoundFull review
