Psychedelic pop-rockers Marlin’s Dreaming has won the hearts and ears of many fans across the globe. From gliding pop ballads to grungy post-punk, Marlin’s Dreaming has been continually striving to diversify their sound and improve their live performances.
Hailing from a cold, damp flat in Hope Street, Dunedin, the band released their first body of work, Lizard Tears In October 2017, just a couple of months after forming. It was an eight-song mix of indie-pop tasters, and one reworked track from frontman, Semisi Maiai’s, former band GROMz. The album reached huge popularity across streaming platforms worldwide and transitioned into two sold-out tours of New Zealand.
In 2018 Marlin’s Dreaming released their second body of work, Talk on Commic. The EP retains the wry humour of Lizard Tears, but is less mannered: a darker beast with 90’s fangs evoking many of the post-punk greats.
