NEWS: Keyside unveil their retro-tinted single,’Paris to Marseille’

Rising Liverpool four-piece, Keyside, have unveiled their retro-tinted new single, ‘Paris To Marseille,’ a jangling slice of airy indie rock dripping with a distinct Liverpudlian edge, ‘Paris To Marseille’ is a classic guitar track deftly updated for the modern-day.

Reminiscent of indie icons like The Smiths and The La’s, or contemporaries like The Lathums or The Snuts, the cut blends airy acoustic guitars with twanging riffs and melodic bass lines that see Keyside firmly stake their place as a hotly tipped new name to watch closely on the thriving Liverpool music scene. The song received its first play during BBC Music Introducing which praised their breezy brand of guitar-driven indie. The song is accompanied by a nostalgic official video that sees performance shots of the band superimposed over fuzzy footage of the French capital. Watch here:

Speaking of the track, frontman Dan Parker said,
“Paris To Marseille’ was written sometime in winter 2021, and I had already written most of the lyrics apart from the verses. I remember walking by the Mersey at the time, which inspired the opening lyric: “Across the water/moonlit reservoir.”

After forming just 18 months ago, the Liverpool four-piece released their debut single ‘Lights Out‘ last year, and gained praise from the likes of Gigslutz and BBC Introducing.

Keyside are Dan Parker (vocals, acoustic guitar), Ben Cassidy (lead guitar), Oisin McAvoy (drums) and Max Gibson (bass, vocals). Hailing from all corners of the continent, Ben and Dan are Liverpool natives, while Oisin is from Ireland and Max from Spain. Endorsed by Carl Hunter of legendary Liverpool band The Farm, Keyside have already gained quite a reputation
in their hometown, renowned for their unapologetic and confident sound that “is able to take you out of a darkened sweaty basement and into the fresh fields of the festival season” (Liverpool Noise).

Having recently sold out their first two hometown headline shows, Keyside have supported some of the most exciting names in the city and gigged in some of Liverpool’s top venues including the O2 Academy and The Arts Club.
