The other day I felt like listening to The Ocean Party as I was in the mood for some gentle, summery guitar pop. I noticed on the label's Bandcamp page that they'd also put out this Marlovers LP and that rang a few bells as they'd send this in for review recently. A good way of reminding me about it. Marlovers come from Spain and play the kind of catchy guitar pop that has me thinking of The Popguns. What I like about this band is the jangly guitar, the charm of Marina's accent in the vocals, the way the lyrics are full of melancholy, nostalgia and wistfulness and the fact that they can write a decent pop song. They can also write a brilliant pop song like the title track, "Working Late" and "Just A Boy" which had me hitting the repeat button multiple times when I first heard them.
