Morrisey & Marshall Announce New Single

‘Hangin’ Around’ is the latest single from rock n roll duo, Morrissey & Marshall. Having just released their second studio album, ‘We Rise’ and with the crowds growing on their current European and festival tour, the duo feel this is the perfect time to let this 3 minute summer pop song fly.

Darren Morrissey had this to say about the single:
‘”Hangin’ Around”, in short and in a nutshell, is a song about a love affair with boozing and partying. It’s about not having the ability to just go home and leave the session, club or party at a reasonable hour for the fear of missing out. It’s about the envy for the sensible ones who know when it’s time to call it a day.

“Who are those people taking the last bus home? They never fail. I feel it’s time to go then you order mine, oh you’re far too kind. Then I rush for the door and you people plead ‘one more’ and here I stay”

Musically it pays homage to the artists who have influenced us. It starts with a 90’s style riffy guitar intro and goes on a journey into a harmony driven 60’s pop chorus.
We teamed up with one of our heroes in comedy, Hugh Cooney for the video because he, just like us, heavily relates to what the song is about. For a long time we’ve wanted to work with Hugh and this project suited perfectly. We had a solid team for this one. It was directed by James Skerrit, Hugh and ourselves. Hugh also did the incredible animation and edited.
I am so proud of this one and feel that it really captures what we are all about in under 3 minutes. It’s my Favourite track on the record.’

In the past, the duo have supported Sinead O’Connor, The Magic Numbers, The Beautiful South and Damien Dempsey to name a few and include Shane McGowan and Cillian Murphy amongst their fans. Their last single ‘She’s Got Love’, was crowned record of the day, record of the week and was A-Listed on Radio 1 Ireland. Their latest album has been incredibly received, and the reviews have been much the same:

“It’s impossible to resist. Roll on summer.”

“proper solid indie guitar anthems, stuffed with uplifting harmonies, harking back to the glory days of Britpop, when shiny bright tunes of this ilk jangled away on every station across the land”

“The two friends appear to possess an innate ability for incredibly catchy indie-pop, and long may it continue.”

“A clear result of the duos evolution, with their smooth guitar riffs and matching melodies in the form of their “simply beautiful unison vocals” still very much present, now however, met with regimented drum bars.”

“Timeless, immaculately tailored”

“infectious indie-pop.”

“Morrissey & Marshall are the real deal”
