Marsicans

9:15pm - 9:45pm (Saturday)


Marsicans are a pre-album UK indie band. With their driving, harmony-laden sound, a steady stream of engaging singles and hard-hitting live shows, they are earning themselves a reputation as rising stars on the British music scene.

The Leeds band has had a whirlwind 18 months: sold-out tour dates up and down the UK; a BBC Radio 1 stage slot at Reading and Leeds festivals; supporting Foals in Germany, opening for the Kaiser Chiefs at Elland Road stadium, supporting Fickle Friends, JAWS, Clean Cut Kid and US indie band Hippo Campus on tour in the UK and Europe; a string of seven singles supported by BBC Radio 1 (Annie Mac, Phil Taggart, Jack Saunders, Huw Stephens), all gracing New Music Friday and other Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer and Amazon editorial playlists; live sessions for VEVO DSCVR and BBC's legendary Maida Vale studios; a Samsung Galaxy worldwide ad sync; tracks featured on C4's Sunday Brunch, MTV, BT Sport and the opening credits of Made In Chelsea; and a surprise UK 7" vinyl chart #1 for their last single Your Eyes.

There is even more in store for the second half of 2019: a new single Little Things, a full UK festival run, some big autumn tour dates to be announced, an end-of-year 1000-capacity headline show (their biggest to date) and, perhaps most exciting, a debut album in the works.
