London based duo Morrissey & Marshall announce the release of their new single 'Stand Down' on August 12th, their irresistible harmonies draw comparisons with The Everly Brothers and Simon and Garfunkel with an Irish twist.
"We felt this would be the perfect follow up to 'Cold November Sunrise' - it is a step in a direction that feels very exciting to us. We're growing as writers, The (Morrissey and Marshall) band are growing in numbers and we're loving it right now."
"Lyrically, the song is inspired by those poor unfortunates (usually politicians) who tend to stop at nothing when striving for success... They will lie, mislead, instill fear and do whatever it takes to get the people on side, without any true regard for the people. This song sparks the idea that there will eventually come a time when we'll come together, rise above them and use truth and honesty to start fixing all of the things that need to be fixed."
Morrissey and Marshall, both as a duo and with full band are performing a series of concerts throughout the summer including several festivals.
The band play at The Talking Heads in Southampton on August 9th
As well as full band, Morrissey & Marshall perform as a harmony duo and have toured with The Magic Numbers, Sinead O'Connor, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott and Damien Dempsey to name a few.
