Psychedelic pop rockers Marlin’s Dreaming have announced a four stop tour of NZ, just weeks after finishing a full-length record, set for release at the top of next year.
From gliding pop ballads, to grungy post-punk, Marlin’s Dreaming have been continually striving to diversify their sound and improve their live performances.
Hailing from a cold, damp flat in Hope Street, Dunedin, the band released their first body of work, Lizard Tears In October 2017, just a couple of months after forming,. It was an eight song mix of indie pop tasters, and one reworked track from frontman, Semisi Maiai’s, former band GROMz. The album reached huge popularity across streaming platforms worldwide, and transitioned into two sold out tours of New Zealand.
In 2018 Marlin’s Dreaming released their second body of work, Talk on Commic. The EP retains the wry humour of Lizard Tears, but is less mannered: a darker beast with 90’s fangs evoking many of the post-punk greats.
