[IAI PREMIERE] Marsicans unveil 'Arms of Another' video

The Leeds-based indie quartet have given us an exclusive look at their brand new video and we can now reveal it to you!

Describing themselves as "upbeat indie that meets dirty pop", Marsicans manage to capture a tropical, sun-kissed melody once again in Arms of Another but subsequently also going on to create similarities to old school indie bands like The Maccabees too. The single is just another promising release from a band who have been putting their foot in the door for a very long time - we managed to stumble across this band at the BBC Introducing stage at Reading Festival four years ago.

The video offers a fly-on-the-wall kind of approach following the band through many live gigs and capturing any of those key backstage moments. It's clear from the video that the band are starting to become their own more than ever and are building on the identity that so perfectly fits for them. Giving the sense that this is a new chapter in the band's career, Arms of Another and its video seems celebratory and fulfilling, though it's about the new for human need and companionship. Take your time to listen to the lyrics and you'll hear James Newbigging telling a story in a unique, unfiltered way.

Arms of Another is released on January 29th through Love vs Fear records. It is confirmed that Marsicans have a series of releases set for 2016 but there's no better way to kick it off than with this song which can clearly hold the lead.

Take a few minutes out of your day to watch this video and get to know one of the best Leeds bands around. There's a reason we have been keeping our eye on them for four years.
