Marionettes are purveyors of frantic alterna-pop. Having circulated the UK music scene since 2007, their upcoming tour sees the release of their new single, Teaparties; the precursor to their debut album.
Marionettes have supporting the likes of The Pigeon Detectives, The Joy Formidable, The Ordinary Boys, 1990s and Errors to name but a few.
Here are some nice things people have said about Marionettes:
"Showcasing fantastic musicianship that comes only with years of relentless gigging and touring, Tea Parties is a solid song that rises and falls in all the right places." Hercules Moments
"blistering indie rock tracks imbued with cracking pop choruses and lovely fuzzy guitar riffs. Marionettes may well be Scotland’s best kept secret." Alphabet Bands
“Shrinking Violets is an insatiable shot of indie-pop decorated with shout-along hooks and intricate guitar melodies." Hot for the Encore
"...The Marionettes are one of these bands who have risen way above the pale in terms of musical ability and pretty clever lyrics..." The Fly
"...very fast, very loud and very promising..." Culturedeluxe
