We had a chat with emerging indie act and CLOUT favourites Marsicans following the release of their excellent latest single ‘Can I Stay Here Forever (pt. II)’
Leeds’ Marsicans have spent the last few years building an ardent following with their effervescent brand of indie pop. The outfit have honed their craft and now possess a potent cocktail that melds the the raw cutting edge of indie rock with the biggest, most soaring melodies of pop, creating a truly memorable sound that fires on all cylinders.
The track is the first pulled from an upcoming as-of-yet untitled debut full length, a release that is sure to see the outfit continue their ascent. We had a chat with drummer Matthew ‘Cale’ McHale in an effort to pull the curtain back on their time spent as an outfit, the road they have taken to get to where they are, and what the future holds for the hotly-tipped act.
