UNDER THE RADAR: Marble Gods – “Washing Machine”.
Hailing from Glasgow, Marble Gods are an indie-pop trio, of which available information is somewhat scarce. Thus far they’ve released a handful of singles, but their output is set to step up later this month with the release of their untitled debut EP.
Ahead of that release, Marble Gods have shared the first taste of the record, in the form of new single, Washing Machine, “a song about finding your feet and washing your socks”. Delightfully lo-fi, it’s a winning blend of guitars with just the right amount of jangle, and drums that are a rambunctious clatter of snares and cymbals. In many ways it’s classically indie-pop; what makes it leap out from the crowd is the stunning vocal, which possesses the same gentle, yet subtly tough quality of Alvvays’ Molly Rankin. Early days for Marble Gods it may be, but this is a hugely promising place to start.
