If I were Freya, I’d be wide awake, all the time, so I could listen to Marsicans serenade me with their music. The Leeds based indie pop and indie rock quartet, who’ve long graced our pages with their outstanding music, reveal a new side to their sound with introspective twinkling Wake Up Freya, which showcases a more sensitive side to their harmony laden sound. They trade in their usual arena-sized hooks for a more delicate and tender approach.  Marsicans’ Newbigging says Wake Up Freya was written for his niece before she was born. He continues: “My brother mentioned she might be called Freya so, after I wrote the song, they kind of had to name her that! It was a particularly bad news day and I started thinking about how amazing the world is when you’re young, compared to how fucked up everything seems to be when you’re older. The song was written as if I was talking to her. It’s about taking stock of everything that’s good around you and how eventually it’s those people and moments that count rather than all the perpetual shit that surrounds you.”  Marsicans will be heading out on their biggest headline tour to date this March. Wake Up Freya is out on LAB Records. You can stream/download, here.

Leeds indie troubadours Marsicans bring us a warm swathe of infectious guitar pop on their suitably named new single Too Good, which happens to be just what we need on this overcast morning here in San Francisco. Mariscans have delivered a dreamy ode to love on their effulgent fusion of dreamy indie rock and harmonious indie pop. The gloominess outside all but fades away in the face of such honeyed and lush aural bliss. Too Good is out now via all digital platforms, find it, here. Mariscans has a very busy tour schedule ahead of them in the UK, stretching deep into fall. Keep up with their adventures and find out more about tour stops, here.

Ah, friends, sometimes you can’t live without them, even when they royally piss you off for some reason or another. Marsicans pays tributes to their friends with a raucous new jam. Friends is an upbeat skittering, dirty blustering pop rock anthem. The vivacious and riotous, capricious and clamorous single is described as a “poignant ode to those sticky, youthful bonds formed with a group of friends that stretch and flicker, but never break under life’s curve-balls and stresses.” Marsicans just finished a tour supporting Hippo Campus, and they’ve just embarked on a nine date headlining tour in the UK through March to promote their new single. Find out more on their website, here. Purchase Friends from iTunes, here.

Leeds four piece Marsicans released a deluxe edition of their latest EP, The Absence, last Friday, an eight track iteration of the record with several fascinating remixes. The lads also revealed a music video for sweetly endearing, hearty hooking indie pop and coastal rock anthem Absence. The video accompaniment takes us on a seabound adventure with Marsicans, which seems rather fitting considering the sweeping expanse of this gorgeous, heartfelt gem. Marsican’s The Absence (Deluxe Edition) EP is available from iTunes. Those of you in the UK can catch the boys on tour this mont through November at a bevy of dates.

Marsicans exude contagious spirit and infectious melody on the Leeds based four piece’s new song Arms Of Another, a sparkler whose muggy pop heat and plucky indie rock luster are a merging of the very qualities I love about The 1975 and Two Door Cinema Club, all rolled up in one. Arms Of Another is a sun speckled dazzler, and it gets a release on January 29th via Love vs Fear. Watch the quartet’s laid back music video for Arms Of Another below.
