Song Of The Week: Marsicans – Arms Of Another

Song Of The Week: Marsicans – Arms Of Another

The Leeds-born quartet are back with yet another banger titled ‘Arms of Another’. Their ‘indie meets dirty pop’ ethos permeates the track to fabricate a very upbeat summery vibe.

The track initiates with steadily-fast paced drum taps followed by high guitar riffs and energetically intelligent lyrics sang by Yorkshire accented lead vocalist James Newbigging. The single goes on to tell a promiscuous story of how ‘no one likes sleeping alone’. Initially, the track seems to have a somewhat Saint Raymond-esque due to the light drum, guitar sounds and hearty singing. However, as the single progresses the drums, guitar and backing vocals appear to get more layered and heavier; creating an infectious vibe, perfect for singing along to.


The four young lads (Newbigging, Oliver Jameson, Rob Brander and Matthew McHale) have been featured as a BBC Introducing artist and played across various radio stations. They have played at Reading and Leeds festival, supported the likes of Catfish and The Bottlemen and The Pigeon Detectives and sold out shows across the country (clips of this make up the music video for ‘Arms of Another’). They are definitely one to watch. In addition, they recorded a full set at a sold-out show in their hometown which you can download for free over at

I’d also recommend checking out their other releases which includes their début EP ‘Cocktail’ and a double A-side single ‘Scuba/Eight Forty’. If you like these, I’d also recommend High Tyde and Circa Waves.

Overall, it’s a great single that you can enjoy at any time which should be all the reason to see them on their current tour.

‘Arms of Another’ has been officially released Today.
