“It’s All The Same When I Get Home.”
As life returns to normal after a long hot Summer of weekend festivals and vacays abroad, it won’t be too long before those home comforts and the daily grind begin to get boring. Unpacking their bags after their appearances at Reading and Leeds, Indie-pop quartet Marsicans relate to our inevitable restlessness with latest single Suburbs. Following on from the bright and breezy Pop-Ups (Sunny at the Weekend), their highly energetic and harmony-laden new track shoegazes through small town scenery and that nagging need to seek out adventures somewhere new.
“Suburbs is about the feeling of not being comfortable where you are. I’d just got back from a pretty hectic few weeks away and I was looking forward to being home. But then I kept getting bored straight away” explains singer James Newbigging. “I guess it’s kind of about wanting more all the time: more experiences, a change of scenery, but not quite knowing why you want it or why you need it. I started over-thinking things quite needlessly. I remember going past a man mowing the grass, making sure the curb edge was pristine, and it made me question everything, I don’t know, but I was probably having a quarter-life crisis.”
In just a couple of weeks, the boys will back on the road as they head out on tour with Fickle Friends. Be sure to catch them at one of their live dates. But for now, experience something new and take a listen below.
