Music Week Presents: Morrissey & Marshall

Music Week Presents: Morrissey & Marshall

Second album “We Rise” heads for the heights

We Rise is the second studio album from Morrissey & Marshall and will be released on 26 May 2017 through DJA Records.Having supported Sinead O’Connor and won over Shane McGowan and Cillian Murphy, Morrissey & Marshall are the real deal. Two album launch shows are being held, the London show is at the Assembly (formerly Barfly) Camden on May 24 and the Dublin show is at the Sugar Club on May 25 and the duo's latest single 'She's Got Love', which is due to be released on May 5th, has just been crowned record of the day, who have called the track "a proper solid indie guitar anthem, stuffed with uplifting harmonies, harking back to the glory days of Britpop, when shiny bright tunes of this ilk jangled away on almost every radio station across the land". The single has also been made record of the week and has been A-Listed on Radio 1 Ireland.

Morrissey & Marshall arrived in London from Dublin with two acoustic guitars and a headful of shared dreams. They set about hauling themselves up the hard way.  “You get to learn that the world is a big place,” says Marshall, the neater-looking, more contained harmony singer and lead guitarist. “You start with nothing, which is a great way to learn your trade. And really, it’s been the best time ever!”

While their debut, And So It Began, won them plaudits as the finest pair of harmony singers to have emerged for decades, Morrissey & Marshall have now upped their game yet further.  The pair sing with empathy and instinctive timing: there is more to close harmony singing than simply hitting the right notes. “Greg and I have lived it together,” Morrissey says. “There’s a chemistry and a bond between us that goes beyond music. We’ve gone through it all together.”

Here's what writer Darren Morrissey says about the single track “She’s Got Love”  -

"She's Got Love was a simple idea that turned into a sort of summer time love song.

The idea popped into my head when I was in Wexford, (Ireland) during our tour with Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott. I watched a flock of birds take flight and the line "Birds will fly and we'll get by, 'Cause that's what we do" popped into my head... the song developed from there.

I suppose the idea is that a lot of our relationships are solely based on material shit - eating out, shopping etc, and not in the important things... like just spending time together ("We spend money just wasting time, but I'll make mine for you")"
