Marsicans - Your Eyes

Marsicans - Your Eyes

In a world of social media, I'd wage a safe bet that you've based your own progression in life on somebody else's, even for a passing moment. As we age through the years, scrolling through your news feed soon becomes all about your friend's new job, their first new home, even marriage. It's a ruthless trap to find yourself in. And one of the biggest reasons I've steered away from the murky depths of Face***k. Marsicans bassist/vocalist Rob Brander knows this all too well as the band follow on from last year's Suburbs, ramping up the volume with another super intelligent, helluva infectious pop song. Explaining the reasoning behind its conception, he goes on to say: "Your Eyes is a song about a particular time in my life when I felt I was being left behind by those around me. Everyone I had grown up with was making these big ‘life’ decisions and overarching plans for the future, whilst I was still treading water. I wondered what they might think of me, or whether they were secretly feeling unsure of them-selves but putting up a front. I think it’s impossible not to judge ourselves by the successes of our peers." Take a listen for yourselves below as they continue hard at work on their debut album.

Marsicans are: James Newbigging - lead vocals and guitar, Oliver Jameson - guitar and vocals, Rob Brander - bass, keyboards and lead vocals, Matthew 'Cale' McHale - drums and vocals.
