Who: 4-piece post-punk team from Arlon, Belgium

New single: INTIMITÉ

Info: “On their second single from their upcoming album released with Luik Records
at the beginning of 2023, Belgian band marcel hangs on Molière’s tongue while proposing
a synthesis between the snark of Jacques Dutronc, the phantasmagory of John Cooper Clarke and the toothless riffs of the Replacements. When angry post-punk meets Belgian yéyé, you
get the most efficient charivari: some nice noise for everyone in your family.”

TUTV: These manic motherrockers are a badass hit team that loves to crank up the heat with steaming post-punk stunners like this one. Intimité rumbles and grumbles from the kick-off. Turbulent guitars, a pushing drum/bass tandem, spit and sneer vocals, moments of sensuality with female artist BLANK\\, a flipped chorus and a flipped choir ending all make your hair stand up in the back of your neck. Final result: a jagged jackhammer to have on repeat for a while.

Check it out…

I saw MARCEL for the first time last Saturday in my hometown Ghent (Belgium). Man, oh, man, these guys know how to smash-and-trash with the decibels way up. The man in the middle draws all the attention. He stares and glares like Johnny Rotten back in his heyday with the Sex Pistols and screams his lungs out throughout the gig. Vive Marcel!

Marcel is gonna be big in Emerica soon

“Comment ça va?”
