Welcome to Noise Creator’s New Noise column where we tell you about the best up and coming bands we think everyone will be talking about soon. Conquering an August EP release and basking in a triumphant victory in the Ernie Ball Battle of The Bands, Marina City are sure to become a familiar name with the Warped Tour crowd in the upcoming year. This Chicago six-piece creates a sound that’s accessible for the loyal alternative listener and impressive and unique to the critical ear. Their ability to stand out and their amazing work ethic is undoubtedly why they’ve reigned victorious above thousands of hopeful locals. Thanks to their contest win, they’ve earned a spot on the Vans Warped Tour this summer. The band’s latest release Wanderlust was produced by Casey Bates, known for his work on notable albums by Foxy Shazam, Pierce The Veil and Portugal. The Man among many others. Bates has a history in working with bands with a more dynamic nature and making sure that every intricate musical part through comes through on the album – making him a perfect match for the powerhouse that is Marina City.
