Marsicans unveil new single 'Summery In Angus'

With their highly-anticipated debut album set to drop later this year, Marsicans have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Summery In Angus' follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Sunday', ‘Juliet’ and ‘Can I Stay Here Forever (pt. II)’ in previewing their first LP 'Ursa Major', which will now be released on the 14th August via Killing Moon Records.

Speaking about their new offering, frontman James Newbigging said, “'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. It starts off referencing lines from a really old poem my Grandad used to tell me when I was younger. There seems to be various versions which go back a few hundred years, but the 'nonsense poem' always made me laugh, and I thought it summed up the opposing sides perfectly”.
