Marvin’s Revenge are a three-piece grunge/alternative rock band from the small town of Wirksworth, Derbyshire. With a distinctly sharp northern slur and a backline reminiscent of the best of DC, Seattle and LA’s music scenes this is just the revenge you were looking for.
They play original alternative rock and grunge music and are soon releasing a single which was recorded at Dubrek studios in Derby. They made a debut EP (which is amazing) in Luke Eaton (singer’s) bedroom and released it on all digital streaming platforms on the 12th of June 2018.
They all originate from the town of Wirksworth but mainly play gigs in Nottingham as it is their biggest local city and has a reputable scene for live music. All members have been playing together for around 3 years and have been parts of different bands, but Marvin’s Revenge formed just under a year ago. They have been gigging and writing music together since.
Job (drummer) and Ollie (guitars) first started jamming together 5 years ago as they were in the same music class at school. Luke joined them soon after when he began to learn guitar. All of them went to the same secondary school so through seeing each other every day and developing common interests and friendship they eventually formed a band. Their three favourite bands and main influences are Foo Fighters, The Beatles and Radiohead.
They say about new single ‘Overlook’, “After our release of ‘D’EP’ we decided we wanted to record something in a studio instead of a bedroom. So, we were put into contact with Dubrek studios in Derby and we got straight to it. If we could describe it ourselves we would say it’s a mix of calm, ambient melodies, gritty vocals and powerful drums with contrasting crunchy, bass heavy guitar tones and loud dramatic choruses. We feel that it is not particularly influenced by anything but past influences have had an effect on the creation of it.”
All the quirk and bleak blends very well in the music video for the single, which we are pleased to premiere today!
