Marrow - "Paulson"

Photo by Katie Graves
Marrow is a brand new band comprised of former members of Chicago alt-hip hop group Kids These Days. After the formation of Marrow, Liam Cunningham (guitar/vocals) toured as a member of Tweedy and Macie Stewart (keyboard/vocals) toured with Chance the Rapper. It's an interesting combination, which doesn't really fit Marrow's sound. "Paulson" shows off this weird mix that lives in between pop punk, folk, and 90s alternapop, kind of like Laura Stevenson, or Field Mouse without the shoegaze elements. They're all in their early 20s, but it doesn't feel like that since they've been playing together since high school. And I'm sure touring with the likes of Jeff Tweedy doesn't hurt.

You can check out Marrow at their website or Facebook. Listen to "Paulson" below, and below that they have some tour dates listed (their first outside of Chicago!).

Tue. April 21 – Philadelphia, PA @ Milkboy

  1. I photographed a fundraising conference here recently. What a wonderful place for photos. I almost always hate being anywhere at 6am, but this breakfast event proved an exception. The manger and his staff at DC venues were extremely professional.
