WHO are they?
Married To The Sea are Sam, Nick, Greg and Simon. Their new EP Cold War Love will be released on March 11th. Here is how it all began.
“We started playing together around 2007 recruiting personnel from two previous bands. One band had become career minded to the point of joylessness and the other jumped around a lot and did a cover of Material Girl. We decided to split the difference.”
WHAT is the inspiration behind their songs?
“Girls mainly. To break up with someone is to experience every emotion at once. That’s why it usually makes the most compelling songs. Musically we’ll get ideas from all over the place but Swedish pop is referenced fairly regularly.”
WHERE did they grow up?
“We all grew up in the suburbs of Liverpool. I wouldn’t say this city specifically has shaped our sound or attitude but there is a healthy live scene here with plenty of opportunities to play, meet people and get better.”
WHY are they called ‘Married To The Sea’?
“It’s a line from the Wes Anderson film Rushmore… and was the only suggestion that didn’t start an argument.”
WHEN can I see them live?
“Unfortunately we’ve had to cancel our February gigs, but fear not we’ll be rescheduling.” Keep updated here.
