Their debut album Ursa Major is out August 14th
Leeds-based indie-rock heroes Marsicans are back with a new single and video!
Created with Sodium Films, the video for ‘These Days’ offers personal moments of their time in lockdown.
Frontman James Newbigging explains “The idea for the video was constantly evolving throughout the process. Due to lockdown measures, we couldn’t meet up to shoot the video so we had to film it individually ourselves; which for a song where the chorus is “I don’t wanna go outside” was rather fitting. Our aim was to show the disconnect between ourselves, technology, and the outside world. We set up our various tripods (and makeshift toilet roll tripods) in our homes and did our best. Our friend Phil at Sodium Films then edited the video together. He conjured up some magic camera trickery which involved filming the footage playing on different kinds of screens, a big lens and some Orwellian flavouring and turned a load of separate homemade clips into a video we really love.”
‘These Days’ along with recent singles ‘Summery In Angus’, ‘Sunday’, ‘Juliet’ and ‘Can I Stay Here Forever (pt. II)’ will feature on the album.
Tickets for their UK tour are available now here.
