A band hotly tipped by The Sunday Times, Marsicans are a fast-rising UK indie quartet whose driving, harmony-laden sound and hard-hitting live shows are earning them a reputation as an emerging force in British music.
The last 12 months has seen support for the band continue to grow on multiple fronts; with a live session at the legendary BBC Maida Vale studios, singles hitting the BBC Radio 1 weekly playlist as well as high-profile Spotify and Apple Music playlists, and the opening credits of E4's Made In Chelsea. A sold-out headline tour earlier this year - including London's Borderline and the 800-capacity Leeds Church - was followed by a packed summer festival schedule and crowning performances in front of huge crowds on the Radio 1 stage at Reading & Leeds Festivals. Their autumn single 'Suburbs' hit 100,000 streams on Spotify within a few weeks of release.
Never ones to stand still, Marsicans have announced their April 2019 UK tour dates, straight off the back of a nationwide tour with Fickle Friends. If their last headline dates are anything to go by, tickets will sell quickly.
It all started when Ed Cares, one of west London's most in-demand male nannies, was overheard humming a song he had written, by Katie, aged six, who persuaded him to form a band. Josh, eight, boldly proclaimed: "You're probably my second favourite artist after Katy Perry." And so, after sourcing some neighbourhood musicians capable of living up to Josh’s heady billing — specifically Emma Topolski on bass, Rich Legate on guitar and Glyn Daniels on drums — Ed soon had an able band to perform with under the only logical moniker in the circumstances: CHILDCARE.
