An indie band with a dirty pop twist, Marsicans is a Leeds-based band, which first started playing and recording songs in 2014. They cite their main influences as The Beach Boys, Bombay Bicycle Club and Paul Simon, and their sound has been compared to Foals and Circa Waves.

The 4-piece band has already become known for their energetic stage performances, and they have managed to gain airplay by BBC Radio 1, Radio X, and more. Their notable support slots so far have included Catfish & the Bottlemen, as well as The Pigeon Detectives.

Their limited vinyl and CD copies of their work have sold out, which means their music is well appreciated by a strong fanbase. Their most recent release was in April, entitled Swimming, which is one of their singles that is building up to a new EP release in the very near future.

They have an exciting summer ahead with a string of live appearances, including at Dot to Dot Festival, Nottingham, and Night & Day, Manchester.

Marsicans will be on the Piazza Music Stage at 7pm on Saturday.
