Live Review: Marsicans
Josh Parker catches Marsicans' support slot for Jaws at the Institute, finding their short set to be reason to believe the hype
Kicking things off with live staple, ‘Arms of Another’, Marsicans soon had a large section of the youthful Brummie crowd jumping along, which continued throughout their eight-song set. New single, ‘Throw Ourselves In’, which has received a lot of airplay from Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens, quickly followed to the crowd’s great appreciation. The highlight of their set, though, was recent single, ‘Too Good’, which they decided to drop in about halfway through. If there was any song that truly outlined their potential to one day return here as headliners, it was this one, having been one of the finest indie songs to come out over summer.

This was the third time that I’ve seen Marsicans play live, and this was their most promising performance yet. Having built a solid following in the North of England through their extensive touring, this supporting slot will have done the band no harm whatsoever in enhancing this fanbase further south.
Marsicans will headline The Sunflower Lounge on March 1st 2018. Tickets are available here.
