Fresh from being a part of the hometown bill headlined by Kaiser Chiefs at Elland Road earlier this month, Marsicans have today released their new single Little Things.
“Little Things is a song about the little things in life that keep you going,” bassist/vocalist Rob Brander explains. “It began in rehearsal when James played us a frenetic guitar riff, accompanied by a lyric about being ‘lost in the bread aisle’. We didn’t worry too much about structure, letting the energy in the room dictate where we should take the song next. We ended up with lots of twists and turns – and quite a lot of grit in places.”
“The lyrics were finished over a cup of tea at (drummer) Cale’s, after an enjoyable writing process which featured lists of things that made us all happy. There were some gems that never made the cut, like a line about dropping your toast and it landing butter-side up.”
“As always, our producer Mickey Dale helped us get the best out of the tune in the studio, on a healthy diet of poppadoms, and our friend Fern (Grammy-winning producer/mixer Fernando Lodeiro) delivered a mix that had us all totally buzzing.”
The band have some summer live outings in the diary which will keep them close to home again on July 21st for Tramlines in Sheffield and August 31st for the Bingley Weekender in West Yorkshire.
