If you keep up to date with the UK’s indie music scene then chances are you’ve heard of the band Marsicans who’s addictive brand of infectious indie pop had made them one of the most exciting acts to watch in recent times. Today they’ve dropped Sunday with the sentiment behind the song being quite poignant in the modern times we’re experiencing right now with it being about how no matter where you are in the world it’s the people who are with you that make the memories that will last a lifetime.
“Sunday is written about a time we spent in Toronto and upstate New York”, explains Marsicans’ frontman James Newbigging. “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.”
There’s a sense of unbridled joy that is ever present throughout the track with the energetic pop melodies making you want to jump out of your seat and dance like nobody’s watching. The vocal harmonies are on point with them adding another layer to this already beautifully sonically textured track and when you combine all that with those lyrics then you know you’ve got an intoxicatingly good piece of indie pop.
