Having recently released their infectious new single ‘Pop-Ups (Sunny at the Weekend)’ through LAB Records, indie-pop quartet Marsicans today unveil the video to accompany the track. Watch the video here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeTrNg–mn8.
Marsicans singer and guitarist James Newbigging on the Pop-Ups video; “We wanted to recreate the annoying nature of pop-up ads blocking the parts of web-sites that you want to see. Our guitarist Oli animated the video and put in a few hidden surprises along the way.”
Going further to speak about the track James explains, “I came back into the rehears-al room one day and found (drummer) Cale playing a riff on my guitar. When I got home from rehearsal with the riff stuck in my head, I was watching a film online and got a pop-up ad along the lines of “Wow, look how much money I’ve made.” It got me thinking about the people in life that make all these false promises to you and try and get you into their crazy schemes. Lyrically, the song is basically just poking fun at those chancers.”
Marsicans (“MAR-sick-anz”) – upbeat indie meets dirty pop – Their driving, harmony-laden sound and exciting live shows are earning them a reputation as an emerging force in British music.
After touring with Clean Cut Kid, Jaws and Minnesota’s Hippo Campus, Marsi-cans’ biggest UK headline tour took place in March this year. Shows in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and the 700-capacity Leeds Church all sold out in advance.
Along with the release of their new single ‘Pop-Ups (Sunny at the Weekend)’, this summer has seen a jam-packed festival schedule for the band with performances at Barn On The Farm, Kendal Calling and many more, culminating in slots on the Radio 1 stage at Reading & Leeds Festival.
