Named by the Guardian in their 50 Best New Artists for 2020, Marsicans are a fast-rising indie band from Leeds whose debut album 'Ursa Major' will be released on 14 August 2020 on Killing Moon Records.
With their driving, harmony-laden sound and raucous live shows, Marsicans have had a whirlwind 18 months: sold-out tour dates up and down the UK, including selling out their first 1,000-capacity headline show in advance; headlining BBC Introducing stages at Reading and Leeds festivals; opening a Kaiser Chiefs stadium show at Elland Road, supporting Foals in Hamburg, touring the UK with We Are Scientists; a string of ten consecutive singles supported by UK national radio BBC Radio 1 and Radio X, all of them gracing New Music Friday UK and other Spotify/Apple Music/Deezer/Amazon editorial playlists; filmed live sessions for VEVO DSCVR and at the BBC's legendary Maida Vale studios; tracks featured on BBC TV's Jools Holland, Match Of The Day, MTV, BT Sport and the opening credits of Made In Chelsea; a Samsung Galaxy worldwide ad sync; and a surprise UK 7" vinyl chart #1 for 2019 single 'Your Eyes'. Marsicans were due to headline the BBC Introducing line-up at South x Southwest 2020's British Music Embassy stage before COVID 19 forced the event's cancellation.

James Newbigging - vocals and guitar
Rob Brander - vocals and bass/keyboards
