The Marivaux Short Info

From Manchester, four twenty-something's, their first single 'All In Good Time' featured on the BBC Introducing playlist, was played on BBC 6 Music, Radio 2, Real XS, and Imagine FM among others.

Their new single and EP #BIRDSANDTHEBEES has been mixed by Grammy Award Winner Ian Dowling (Catfish & the Bottlemen, Adele, Bombay Bicycle Club). Their sound is a rallying call for the disfranchised and speaks to the free thinkers. Independent band who have toured Europe four times set for a fifth in December '15, with a growing fanbase who appreciate the band's live experience. Untarnished underground music.

Brand new single 'Birds and The Bees' was released in autumn '15 along with an awesome music video directed by life-long friend and established actor and visionary Sean Ward (Our Girl, Away Days and Coronation St.) and the band, starring Georgia May Foote (Strictly Come Dancing and Coronation St.) and local legendary Manchester actor and model Jack Johnson, who features and works on all of the band's previous videos.

Description:

The band are: Phil McAdam (lead singer & guitarist), Matt Shields (lead guitarist and vocals), Ben Peacock (vocal and drums), & Rik Packer (vocals and bass).
The Marivaux refuse to be strangled by the shirt and tie lifestyle, creating a sound that emulates their reason for living, not existing, at a volume that cannot easily be ignored.

Naturally restless musicians, gritty ambition has seen four years of shows around the UK, Ireland and Europe and booked again for December of 2015, self funded and purely driven by love of music, people and travelling.

Keep an eye out for new releases in Autumn of 2015 and their plans for more UK, Scandinavian and European tour on the bands social media platforms. The Marivaux's All In Good Time EP was released in October 2014 and the debut EP is now available on iTunes, and in physical format at their live shows, along with limited edition T-shirts.

“These guys have got such star quality, they never fail to surprise me.” - Producer Simon ‘Dingo’ Archer (Pixies, PJ Harvey, The Fall).

"The Marivaux - music for the mind, songs for the soul - watch them grow." - Mike Garry (Legendary Manchester poet, author of God Is A Manc, currently touring with John Cooper Clarke.)

“The best band I’ve seen in about f****** 10 years. “ - Cass Lewis (Skunk Anansie).

“Think if Thin Lizzy had a bastard child with Kings of Leon, which was then brought up by Foo Fighters. A band to watch out for in 2014” – Mason Jones (Manchester Evening News, NME).
