Marsicans are a young indie band from Leeds whose driving, harmony-laden sound and exciting live shows are earning them a reputation as an emerging force in British music. The four-piece, three old schoolmates and a friend from the Leeds music scene, released their first single in 2015 and have worked relentlessly since.
2017 has been Marsicans’ busiest year to date: they signed to LAB Records and X-ray Touring; their EP hit a million plays on Spotify; singles have made the BBC Radio 1 weekly playlist, the opening credits of E4’s Made In Chelsea and were shared online by Coldplay; they played to packed rooms at Live At Leeds, Brighton’s Great Escape, Manchester’s Dot-To-Dot festivals and half a dozen UK festival stages including Leeds Festival. This autumn, their incessant gigging schedule took them to Europe for Minnesota’s Hippo Campus’ debut album tour and around Britain with Clean Cut Kid. They join forces with Jaws for dates later this month and head out on their own UK headline tour in March.
Marsicans’ brand new single, Throw Ourselves in, described by Wonderland Magazine as “arguably the group’s grungiest song but still glittering with their signature colourful harmonies and joy filled vibes”
