songs you don’t know: “Sleep”, Marion

22 Jan

Marion never broke big in the US.  Actually, they never seem to have broken in the US at all, which is a shame, because they’re very good.  Their music is somewhat reminiscent of what Idlewild was doing in 2002 or so (there’s another band we should tackle at some point in these pages…), and “Sleep” has Suede’s shimmer and Oasis’s swagger.  A hidden gem from my favorite period in musical history – enjoy it.

(This is a live performance – the studio version and promo video can be heard here.)
