Indie/emo quintet MARIGOLDS are pleased to reveal their new single ‘Nerves’ which is out now via Beth Shalom Records. The song was released on April 26th.
With one foot planted firmly in the indie and folk world of layered guitars and complex, intertwined melodies, the band marry an ambitious, experimental edge with a sumptuous and lush wash of emo and shoegaze influences, resulting in a sun-soaked, hazy sound that provides the perfect pillow for keyboard player Lydia White’s gorgeous vocal.
As songwriter Joe Maguire explains, new single ‘Nerves is all about “the pangs of being homesick and missing interactions you used to have—how simple everything used to be.” However, in the same breath, ‘Nerves’ deals with the realisation that situations can change over time, and as people, so do we.
If there’s a key takeaway from ‘Nerves’ then, it’s that we should always try to live our lives with an internal focus on self-evaluation, as Maguire rounds off; “From personal experience, if your internal dialogue is shaped around other people having to think of you in a particular light, this can be a pathway to low self-esteem.”
In their few short years together, Marigolds have so far released two stand alone singles—’Short Shorts’ (2016) and ‘Slept Out’ (2018)—and their 2017 debut EP Asleep In The Sun.
