Song Premiere: The Lawsuits - "Sweet Marcelle"

Fresh on the heels of their debut full-length Cool Cool Cool, Philadelphia quintet The Lawsuits will give us more of their effortless sound in a forthcoming EP, Tumbled.

Members Brian Dale Allen Strouse, Vanessa Winters, Brendan Cunningham, Josh Friedman and Joe Bisirri are not afraid to experiment. “Sweet Marcelle,” the third of four tracks on the new EP, sends a wash of shivery, spine-tingling chords over listeners from the very first note and then keeps them hooked as the song’s story unfolds.

“It’s evocative of a memory, a time and place far enough in your past you’re not sure if it’s real, but close enough that you can still feel it,” Strouse said.

Tumbled is set for release on Sept. 23. In the meantime, you can check out “Sweet Marcelle” in the player above.
