The English indie quartet Marsicans released the single Wake Up Freya on the 9th.
Another band who seem to appear on the site only once a year having first featured in 2016.
The new single identifies a year spent well with Wake Up Freya being their, to my mind, most intricate song thus far released.
There is a gentle timorous frailty of vocal which threads through the composition affording the theme its central pivot seeking to narrate tentative advice to a new-born whilst self-doubting the counselling provided as the building layers of instrumentation afford a guarding layer of protection and caring support in to which the listener is invited to join arms.
Marsicans will be embarking on a six stop England, Scotland tour next month:
1st of March – Birmingham, Sunflower Lounge
2nd of March – London, Borderline
3rd of March – Bristol, Louisiana
7th of March – Glasgow, Garage (Attic)
8th of March – Manchester, Deaf Institute
10th of March – Leeds, Church
