Leeds’ Marsicans have shared a new video for their track, ‘Wake Up Freya’.
“I wrote the song for my niece before she was born. My brother mentioned she might be called Freya so, after I wrote the song, they kind of had to name her that!” says vocalist James Newbigging.
“It was a particularly bad news day and I started thinking about how amazing the world is when you’re young, compared to how fucked up everything seems to be when you’re older. The song was written as if I was talking to her.
“It’s about taking stock of everything that’s good around you and how eventually it’s those people and moments that count rather than all the perpetual shit that surrounds you.”
Marsicans play The Sunflower Lounge Birmingham on Thurs 1st March 2018, with support from Vistas and Spilt Milk Society. Tickets are sold out for this event.
