Marsicans are a fast-rising UK indie band on the brink of releasing their debut album (summer 2020). With their driving, harmony-laden sound and hard-hitting live shows, the quartet from Leeds are earning themselves a reputation as ones-to-watch on the British music scene and abroad.
Marsicans have had a whirlwind 18 months: sold-out tour dates up and down the UK, including their first 1,000-capacity headline show; live dates in Europe and North America; headlining BBC Introducing stages at Reading and Leeds festivals; opening a Kaiser Chiefs stadium show at Elland Road, supporting Foals in Germany, touring the UK with We Are Scientists ; an upcoming invitation to SXSW 2020; a string of eight consecutive singles supported by UK national radio BBC Radio 1 and Radio X, all gracing New Music Friday UK and other Spotify/Apple Music/Deezer/Amazon editorial playlists; filmed live sessions for VEVO DSCVR and the BBC's legendary Maida Vale studios; tracks featured on BBC TV's Jools Holland, MTV, BT Sport and the opening credits of Made In Chelsea; a Samsung Galaxy worldwide ad sync; and a surprise UK 7" vinyl chart #1 for 2019 single 'Your Eyes'.
