“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)
Marsicans are an emerging indie band from Leeds, England, comprised of a gang of four very different individuals: James, a Beatles-obsessed singer; Oli, an art student turned guitarist; Rob, a ‘bolder than your average’ bassist and Cale, a former samba band drummer. All long-time friends from school and Leeds’ music scene, the current line-up started sampling old synths, singing in harmony and writing songs together in 2014.
Marsicans’ earworm pop hooks, hectic gig schedule and growing reputation for exciting live shows quickly led to notable support slots (The Pigeon Detectives, Embrace, Catfish & The Bottlemen) and festival bookings (Kendal Calling, Reading & Leeds festivals). Recent releases have sold out their limited CD and vinyl runs and grabbed airplay on Radio 1, 6Music, Radio X, 3FM (Netherlands), BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio along with a sackful of positive coverage from the blogosphere.
