Marquis Drive really packs in the hooks with their new Double-A sided singles titled ‘Shine On’ and ‘Unite’. Each song has it’s own signature sound while retaining that certain something that Marquis Drive has all it’s own. Part originality mixed with a solid mixture of the instruments really beef the tracks up and give each one it’s an original special stamp on your ears.
‘Shine On’ has this spectacularly sounding horn section that sends the chorus way over the top and gave me a smile as I thought ‘These guys get it’. ‘Unite does the same with the organ intro and driving chord progressions with a guitar sound that is driven yet somewhat clean, proving ‘Marquis Drive’ knows where to set the dials. On everything.
‘Unite’ and ‘Shine On’ are available from all major digital distributors and a limited edition 7” colored vinyl are available HERE.
Marquis Drive, named after a local alternative tourist attraction, is a seven-piece band from the West Midlands drawn together by a mutual love of strong melodies and anthemic choruses, whilst their explosive live performances have seen them supporting the likes of Dodgy, Reverend and The Makers, the Lightning Seeds and Cast to name a few.
About Marquis Drive
From the deepest, darkest parts of the West Midlands comes the sound of frustration, dreams and hard work. Upbeat to the point of euphoria, the anthemic choruses are set alongside the verses of everyday life.
Marquis Drive wants to help you to escape the 9 to 5 and remind you that there will always be a Friday just around the corner.
Formed under a wandering star somewhere next to a Wetherspoons the 7-piece indie band are born of a mutual love of football, clobber and great music. They boast a truly epic sound, in part thanks to a range of guitar, percussion, and vocals.
Marquis Drive has a truly loyal set of fans, who continue to grow number and become part of the extended weekend family. Known well throughout the UK, high profile performances at summer festivals and venues have put them on the lips of indie royalty.

Having built their strong reputation up and down the country supporting major acts such as; The Farm, Reverend and the Makers, The Wonder stuff, Shed Seven and many more, Marquis Drive released their first single “Movin On’” in August last year to much acclaim, with over 140,000 streams to date on Spotify alone.
The past 6 months have been somewhat of a whirlwind for the band and has seen them land a licensing deal based on their first release and 3 clothing endorsements. With high-profile gigs and more single releases planned this year, the hard-working Marquis Drive will be earning their reputation amongst the masses as Indie’s worst-kept secret.

“It’s a powerhouse of a single.”
– Lucy Onions Music Photography & Reviews
“It stands out as a track because refreshingly it doesn’t just seek to replicate those heady days when you couldn’t move for a Gallagher, but puts their own personality on it – and the video which shows them larking around in a field with scooters does exactly the same.”

“Marquis Drive had the whole venue bouncing and singing as they created a real festival atmosphere. Such was the buzz created, it would be tough for any band to follow.”
