MARBLE GODS Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 30 July 2017, Marble Gods

Marble Gods are Glasgow art-pop trio consisting of Eimear Coyle (guitar / vocals), Connell King (bass) and Kieran Coyle (drums). Their sound is fun and upbeat, with a tongue-in-cheek humour.

Unusually, when they self-released their first physical offering at Nice N Sleazy in Glasgow on Thursday – an EPK titled Song – they chose to do so on the super retro cassette format.

They’ve secured airplay from Nicola Meighan on BBC Radio Scotland and have magazines like DIY onboard. The band have also supported artists like Bis, The Spook School and Breakfast Muff.
