PHILADELPHIA, PA | SEPT 11, 2020 - Indie/alt rock band Marcelyn, the band have announced the upcoming release of their new LP "Monstrous Existence," available on all digital platforms September 25th. The three piece features a wide range of instruments on the LP, delving into dynamic, organic production. About the creation of the album, the band states:
Recording this album remotely really made us rethink our writing process and how we work out songs. Because we had to send full parts back and forth, we had fully formed ideas of how a part should go, or where a change should be made, and having that mapped out made a big difference. We sometimes had 3 or 4 different versions or mixes of songs, with different instrumentation. So we got to pick and choose the best versions of each song.
Marcelyn, the band is something both fragile and deadly with a heavy helping of kickass. Originally the solo project of classically-trained singer Marcelyn Lebovitz, this band has now grown into a three-piece force to be reckoned with, featuring namesake Marcelyn on vocals and ukulele, her brother Mike on bass, and Travis Martin on drums, keyboard and guitar. The trio serves indie rock weirdness on a silver platter with a side of smooth vocals, audacious bass playing, and groovy beats.
Their debut LP "Indignities & Depravities" was released on June 1, 2018; their second "This is Woman's Lib?" came out on August 8, 2019. “Monstrous Existence,” their third album, will be available everywhere on September 25, 2020. Two singles, “Quarantine Song” and “Empty Room,” are already streaming. The band used to play shows throughout the United States (mostly in their hometown of Philadelphia), but since the pandemic it’s been livestreams on Instagram. Wear a mask.
