Leeds four piece Marsicans today reveal their brand new and somewhat oddly titled single Summary In Angus. The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming debut album Ursa Major, which has recently been pushed back to August 14th because of you know what. Listen to Summary In Angus below.
Exploring the dichotomy of self, the new song is the fourth to be released from the band’s debut album. It follows on from previous singles Sunday, Juliet and Can I Stay Here Forever (pt.II). More information on the album, including the full tracklisting and artwork, can be found here.
Speaking about the track, singer James Newbigging explained:
Summery in Angus was written around the time when the UK started naming storms and Storm Angus was all the rage. I was indoors wearing an over-the-top summery shirt and shorts, whilst it was horrible outside. My girlfriend said, “Look at you, all summery in Angus!” and that phrase seemed to resonate with me, despite it really not making that much sense at first glance.
So, the song is about the two sides of yourself: the not-so-good side which, no matter what fun you’re having, just clouds the back of your mind, and then the side which fights the bad thoughts and tries to keep you positive when everything seems to be going wrong. It’s the inner fight between those two sides.
The band will embark on a UK headline tour this October (Tickets here), including stops in London, Glasgow and Manchester as well as a homecoming show in Leeds. Support comes from Deco and Sad Boys Club. Full dates can be found below this post.
