Marsicans light up Leeds with their new video for 'Juliet'

Marsicans have released a new video for 'Juliet'.

It's the latest track from the band's debut album 'Ursa Major', due for release on 22nd May via Killing Moon.

"We knew we wanted to do a performance video for Juliet in order to try and capture the energy of the song, but under the direction of all-round lovely man Phil Barber of Sodium Films, that vision vastly expanded," explains bassist/vocalist Rob Brander.

"The video became an extension of the album's artwork concept, where we built a large metal frame and hung up colourful shapes, designed and created by our long-time friend and collaborator Liv Hodder. On the album cover, the shapes loosely replicate the constellation Ursa Major.

"Phil had the wild idea of taking elements of the album artwork and shooting in an array of locations, in and around Leeds, that are synonymous with the band. As well as the video, these locations were used to capture the artwork elements in different settings for each individual single.

"There were a lot of 5am starts to capture the right light, and a lot of cold fingers trying to build frames in the drizzle - a lot of work but we are really proud of this one!

Check out 'Juliet' below, and catch the band on tour this October.
