Cactus Music

In the wake of his time leading The Healers, Marrs solo career has given rise to three UK Top Ten albums - The Messenger (2013), Playland (2014) and 2018s Call The Comet. He now returns with his most expansive work to date, Fever Dreams Pts 1-4. It was created during the long, uncertain period that followed the arrival of the UKs first lockdown, when his focus was pushed into both his interior life, and evoking the emotional states of others. Its an inspired record, and I couldnt wait to get in and record every day, he says. But I had to go inwards.

The new album reflects his multi-faceted past, but takes his music somewhere startlingly new. Theres a set of influences and a very broad sound that Ive been developing - really since getting out of The Smiths, he says. And I hear it in this record. There are so many strands of music in it. I think its the most ambitious solo record Ive done.
