The Mariners are a new band from Nottingham, UK. Although their sound is very typical of Liverpool, influenced by the likes of The Beatles, The La's and The Coral.
Their album is gloriously retro. It opens with 'Send My Love To You' which is a very simple 2 minute pop song with 60s Psych vibes.
'Gimme More' is wonderful and echoes The Kinks and The Zombies. The standout track on the album is 'Cathy Come Home' which has a superb opening guitar riff. But my favourite overall song of theirs is the B-Side 'She Said So' which is an absolute lost gem and well worth checking out as well.
Other highlights include 'Bring Her Back To Me' which has hints of Love's A House is not a Motel.
'Dreaming of You' is more charming Beatlesesque Pop but this music never gets old and the band do it well.
A strong debut album, with many memorable songs. Highly recommended Psych pop.
