Brooklyn based indie-rock band Mars Motel have just released their second single ‘Green‘ and it’s awash with melancholy throughout. The tracks lyrics tackle an unusual story of someone who has moved beyond this world, yet still continues to observe their grieving partner trapped in a world of loneliness and despair. ‘Green’ shows off a distinctive rumbling bassline throughout and has rather anthemic choruses which bring surges of energy throughout. The fluctuating, nimble guitar melodies throughout ‘Green’ are also something else and bring life as well as colour to something much darker.
