Have you got your dancing shoes at the ready? Good, because Seattle based three-piece Marion Walker are here to make your feet move with their new release ‘Seriously / Silver Drone’. The tracks are the first to be taken from their upcoming Serious Picnic EP, slated for release on 23 June via Casino Trash Records.
To say these songs are ‘singles’ wouldn’t be quite right, as the EP is actually one 11 min 11 sec long beast of thumping psych rock and infectious grooves, but ‘Seriously / Silver Drone’ represent the first 6 minutes to be carved from the record for your listening pleasure.
‘Seriously’ is a punk rock infused floor shaker with a pop underbelly reminiscent of Vivian Girls, complete with a call and response, sing-along refrain. ‘Silver Drone’ is, as you’d expect, a swirling psych-tinged whirlwind with a hypnotic, riff heavy dirge sitting resplendently at the eye of the storm. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
