Song Of The Week: Marsicans – ‘Throw Ourselves In’


Back with their grungiest cut to date, Marsicans turn everything up a notch on ‘Throw Ourselves In’, which is our Song Of The Week.

Liberal use of scuzz and cymbals accompany the ever-present joyful hooks and harmonies that have come to define this Leeds quartet.

‘Throw Ourselves In’ comes as Marsicans round off a very successful year. With huge perfomances alongside Clean Cut Kid, Hippo Campus and a busy festival season has put them at the top of their game. James Newbigging (lead vocals and guitar), Oliver Jameson (guitar and vocals), Rob Brander (bass, keyboards and lead vocals) and Matthew ‘Cale’ McHale (drums and vocals) put all their energy into every second they are on stage and to keep all that going for such a long time is incredible.

Marsicans will also be embarking on their highest-profile headline tour to date in March 2018, show details below.
