Marsicans shot their new vid for ‘Suburbs’ on singer James’s phone

"It was great, but we had no idea if what we had shot would actually work."

Ahead of their upcoming tour with Fickle Friends, Marsicans have released a video for ‘Suburbs’.

The entire clip was shot on singer James Newbigging‘s smartphone, on location in Toronto and upstate New York, while the band were on tour.

Speaking about the making of the video, singer James explains: “We shot this video ourselves when we were out in Canada and the US earlier this year. The suburban shots are in Ithaca, New York and the city shots are in Toronto. We were having a great time looking round these beautiful places and we thought we should probably make the most of our adventures out there.

“For the video itself, we wanted to try and recreate the disconnection between yourself and your surroundings, which the song refers to. We had a very basic outline and just filmed on the fly all week. It was great but we had no idea if what we had shot would actually work. Luckily, our friends at Sodium Films got involved for the edit and managed to pull it together exactly how we imagined it.”

The band are hitting the road again with Fickle Friends on 18th October in Bristol, with the run also taking in London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire, Cambridge, Glasgow, Newcastle, Birmingham and Manchester.
