Having recently announced their debut album Ursa Major for release on May 22nd, Marsicans today reveal their brand new single Sunday. The song was inspired by singer James Newbigging missing his girlfriend while on tour, a sentiment that most of us can relate to during this period of isolation. Listen below.
The new single follows on from previous album cuts Juliet and Can I Stay Here Forever (pt.II). You can find out about more on the band’s debut album, including the full tracklisting and artwork, here.
Marsicans frontman James Newbigging comments on Sunday:
Sunday is written about a time we spent in Toronto and upstate New York. Some of it was written whilst we were out there. We stayed in Koreatown in Toronto, and that was quite fun, and added to the song as the trip went on. The verses are about us having the best time ever, in a new place, and feeling pretty lucky that we get to experience that as a band. So it’s a love song to Toronto and NY State – but it’s also me just missing my girlfriend, despite having the best time in the world. It’s two-love-songs-in-one basically. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, it’s who you’re there with that makes it special
The quartet have also announced a run of UK headline shows for October 2020 (Tickets here). The tour includes 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.
Unfortunately, their appearance at this year’s SXSW wasn’t to be. Instead, they recorded a live session for the BBC Radio 1 as part of their SXSW contingency coverage. Listen back here.
