Marsicans play The Sunflower Lounge 1st March, 2018

Indie pop band Marsicans create vividly coloured tunes that are mirrored by their electricly charged gigs. Typifying their sound with strong pop structures intermingled with rock and indie influences, Marsicans music is full of glee and spontaneity, musicianship that is poignantly perfected in its simplicity. While their songs are usually balls of energy new single Wake Up Freya takes a more melodic footing.

Wake Up Freya is by no means lifeless or dull, whereas some bands shift dramatically when doing a more simplified song Marsicans seems to turn down the tempo while turning up the sonic clashes creating a vulnerable yet full sound. Starting with a simple voice progression intermixed with ethereal keys the song is certainly more stripped than previous songs, giving the ethos of life and newness that correlates with the lyrical content. A crash of sonic moments follows the bridge, the inclusion of a more regular drum sequences paired with the addition of other instrumentals, diluting the simplistic structure. The sonic shift still holds that typical Marsicans sound while also resonating with the narrative of newness and life.

This simplistic exploration into life, be it new life or just a reconstruction of life, is certainly reflected in the music video as well. A compilation of scenes depicted in artistic fashion the music festival gives a great depth to the already blossoming tune.

With Wake Up Freya Marsicans reveals another element, a vulnerable stripped side to their music. Paired with their bubbling punctuations of sound the new tune creates a sophisticated edge admits the joys of youthful giddiness.

Marsicans will bring all this indie pop glory to Birmingham in March, taking over the Sunflower Lounge 1 March.
