Leeds-based four-piece Marsicans have been working towards the release of their highly anticipated debut album Ursa Major and they’ve unleashed another preview of the record with their brand new single 'These Days'. The single is the fifth to be revealed from the album, following in the footsteps of previous tracks such as 'Can I Stay Here Forever (pt. II)', 'Summery In Angus', 'Sunday' and 'Juliet'. The album is due for release on August 14th via Killing Moon Records.

According to Rob Brander from the band, the soaring number is about the rapidly changing nature of human connection. He said, “'These Days' is a song about my relationship with communication in the modern world. Without really realising, I had started using the Internet as a window for almost all my communication and information. I found myself staring at my phone more and more, whether it was to talk to friends, read the news, or even to be creative." Also adding, “The song isn’t necessarily a damning indictment of technology. It’s more about pointing to the rapid changes in human connection and asking the question ‘Is this okay?’”
