Marsicans release their new single ‘Sunday‘ through Killing Moon Records. This breezy indie-pop track features standout harmonies from frontman James Newbigging and bassist Rob Brander. The song’s sentiment about togetherness is particularly poignant for the times we’re living through – “wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, it’s who you’re there with that makes it special.”
“Sunday is written about a time we spent in Toronto and upstate New York”, explains Marsicans’ frontman James Newbigging. “Some of it was written whilst we were out there. We stayed in Koreatown in Toronto, and that was quite fun, and added to the song as the trip went on. The verses are about us having the best time ever, in a new place, and feeling pretty lucky that we get to experience that as a band. So it’s a love song to Toronto and NY State – but it’s also me just missing my girlfriend, despite having the best time in the world. It’s two-love-songs-in-one basically. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, it’s who you’re there with that makes it special.”
In February the band announced their debut album ‘Ursa Major’ which is set for release on May 22nd and a run of UK headline dates for October 2020. ‘Sunday’ picks up from the release of singles ‘Juliet’ and ‘Can I Stay Here Forever pt. II) which will both feature on their debut record.
Unfortunately, like a lot of acts, Marsicans should have performed at this year’s SXSW but it wasn’t to be! In its absence they recorded a live session for the BBC Radio 1 as part of their SXSW contingency coverage.
