Marsicans unveil blistering new one ‘These Days’

As they gear up for the release of their debut album, Marsicans have unveiled another spinning track with ‘These Days’

Packed with more indie goodness than jam in a doughnut (we’re hungry okay), it’s another taster of what to expect from the upcoming release - big hooks and choruses born for live moments (sob)

Speaking about the track, James from the band explains: "‘These Days’ is a song about my relationship with communication in the modern world. Without really realising, I had started using the Internet as a window for almost all my communication and information. I found myself staring at my phone more and more, whether it was to talk to friends, read the news, or even to be creative.”

“When I stopped to think about just how reliant we are on these little black screens to communicate with the world around us, it made me feel uncomfortable. It's too easy to add context to a message, which simply isn’t there, because of the lack of body language or inflection that you might get in a person's actual voice. You’re also less inclined to ask questions about information you read on the Internet, just because it’s on the Internet.”

“The song isn’t necessarily a damning indictment of technology. It’s more about pointing to the rapid changes in human connection and asking the question ‘Is this okay?’”

‘Ursa Major’, Marsicans’ debut album, is set for release on August 14th - including previously revealed tracks such as ‘Summery In Angus’, ‘Juliet’, ‘Sunday’ and ‘Can I Stay Here Forever (pt II). Marsicans are currently set to tour the UK for a big ‘ol UK headline tour this October
