Since breaking into the alt-pop scene in 2019, the actively touring ensemble found themselves selling out headlining shows and sharing the stage with Judah and The Lion, Lovelytheband, Coin, and Joywave, all while recording and gearing up to release their career-defining EP, The Crush (2020). MARINA CITY has had the pleasure of partnering with major Chicago sports teams like the Chicago Bulls and the Chicago Bears, as well as performing live on WGN News. The band’s continued success has also landed them national radio play, licensing spots on MTV, and praise from renowned media outlets such as Alternative Press, which said of the group, “This theatrical has the artistry and determination to give Brendon Urie (Panic! At The Disco) a run for his money.”
Merci implement seamless sonic synthesis. The Washington, D.C. quintet — Seth Coggeshall , Nick Jones , Colby Witko , Justin Mason , and Jack Dunigan — funnel dreamy nocturnal pop through the lens of dyed-in-the-wool rock underpinned by live instrumentation (Think Lana Del Rey reimagining Foo Fighters’ The Colour and the Shape, and you’re halfway there!). After grinding it out around The DMV in various groups since high school, they make their introduction on a series of singles and a forthcoming 2021 full-length debut for Rise Records.
