Darren Morrissey and Greg Marshall, collectively known as Morrissey & Marshall, release their debut album ‘And So It Began’ on the 31st of March 2014. Without pigeonholing itself to any one discipline, the album is a solid inflection into the worlds of Folk, Indie and Rock doused with Pop sensibilities and an abundance of the compelling signature vocal harmonies the band have become known for. However one might categorize their sound, the album is filled with impossible hooks and sweet riffs, rendering you a slave to the repeat button again and again.
Morrissey & Marshall’s sound evokes the raw creativity of the classic 60′s and 70′s pop duos twinned with a modern day troubadour spirit. They count John Grant, Mike Skinner and Shane McGowan amongst their fans, who have all approached the band after seeing them perform live. The band predominantly cites the likes of the Everly Brothers, The Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel as major influences with contemporary inspiration coming from bands akin to Fleet Foxes and Arctic Monkeys.
Recorded and produced by the legendary John Reynolds (Sinéad O’ Connor, Damien Dempsey, Passenger, Seun Kuti) at his ‘New Air’ studios in London, the album possesses a straightforward, perfectly layered, warm and pristine feel, showcasing and giving light to the luxurious instrumentation and vocals.
