Up-and-coming Leeds four-piece Marsicans brought their indie-pop vibe to Southampton for the first time ever, to play at The Joiners.
Their set opened with Arms of Another, a massive track which instantly got the crowd interacting with the band, singing and dancing along. They went on to play a few newer songs including Wake Up Freya – a more stripped back song compared with their more typically dancey tunes – as well as their most recent single, Friends, which was released earlier this year.
The set concluded with popular songs Far Away, Swimming and Absence which were guaranteed to make you move with their infectious guitar and drum beats.
You could tell that the band were truly enjoying themselves from the moment they stepped on stage, and that positive energy spread to the crowd. It’s hard not to get swept along with it all, with songs that are full of hooks and which most certainly transfer well to the live stage.
The group formed in 2014, and are slowly but surely beginning to get the recognition they deserve. There’s no doubt about the future looking positive for the band, and hopefully we’ll be hearing more tunes from them in the coming months.
Marsicans will be joining Natives on their upcoming tour this month. Tickets here.
