In Review: Marionettes – The Rightness of Blindness EP

7 Apr

Made in Scotland, but not from girders, indie five-piece Marionettes are about to drop their latest EP on the world and you know what? It’s worth catching.

The guys have been around the Scottish scene for a little while now, playing the long game, steadily building a reputation, building a fanbase, gigging and getting their music out there. Now though, the slow and steady approach could be overtaken by something a little more hectic as by rights, this new EP should bring them wider recognition and acclaim. The three tracks of The Rightness of Blindness are hook laden pieces of indie rock drawn from the same well oft visited in the past by the likes of the Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes and even Shed Seven.

Each of “Horrorscope”, “Dishwipe Fishwife” (great title) and “Panda Bears” (which you can stream bellow) have an inherent sing-a-long-a feeling. The arrangements too are impressive, with blistering indie rock tracks imbued with cracking pop choruses and lovely fuzzy guitar riffs. Marionettes may well be Scotland’s best kept secret. Famous primarily for oil and granite, the city of Aberdeen now has something else to hang its hat onto.

The Rightness Of Blindness is out Monday 9th April on Bedford Records and you can get it digitally here
