Leeds indie-rock band Marsicans have done it again and released yet another banger! ‘These Days‘ is the fifth single to be taken from their forthcoming, highly-anticipated debut album ‘Ursa Major’ which is set for release this August. It’s a huge track from the word go which is powerful, apt for the moment track and has euphoric, singalong choruses.
Speaking of the track, Marsicans bassist and vocalist Rob Brander has said: “Without really realising, I had started using the Internet as a window for almost all my communication and information. I found myself staring at my phone more and more, whether it was to talk to friends, read the news, or even to be creative.”
“It’s too easy to add context to a message, which simply isn’t there, because of the lack of body language or inflection that you might get in a person’s actual voice. You’re also less inclined to ask questions about information you read on the Internet, just because it’s on the Internet.”
“The song isn’t necessarily a damning indictment of technology. It’s more about pointing to the rapid changes in human connection and asking the question ‘Is this okay?’”
