WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM MARSEILLE

Jane’s Addiction meets Oasis in the 60s-inspired post-punk mesh spun by Derbyshire outfit Marseille. With an average age of 19, these boys have been rocking out and blowing minds all around since conception in 2021. Now backed by a killer deal with Bubblebrain Records, the band is set to take on the world.

March sees the release of their newest single Monkey in the Middle. The tune begins with psychedelic effect-laden instrumentals that send listeners back through time in Marseille’s display of musical abilities beyond their years. Vocalist Will Brown sings above airy drums splashing a cool resonance around his throaty accented voice, while an infectious bassline anchors in the rhythm section.

Though coming in at just under seven minutes, Monkey in the Middle offers little to get bored with. It evolves with structural and dynamic changes that lend themselves to the attention-retaining nature of the track.

The final three minutes are a free-for-all, as each member ramps up their playing to the max. Boundless solo sequences take charge, transcending the song into another world of brilliance. The bassline continues to circle beneath the frenzy to maintain a euphoric rather than chaotic vibe.

This new tune from Marseille demonstrates a level of musicianship impressive from anyone, let alone a group of lads as young as 19. If this is the standard of music they’re producing now, we can’t wait to see what they come out with in the future.
