Formed in Edinburgh in 2007, The Wynntown Marshals tip their hat to artists like The Jayhawks, Wilco, Drive-By Truckers, Ryan Adams and Neil Young.
The Marshals' sound can loosely be described as ‘country rock', although the power pop hooks of "Two's Company" and the Stones-y swagger of "You Can Have My Heart" convey the band's love of guitars, their way with a catchy chorus and their unabashed belief in the power of rock music as a storytelling medium.
The Wynntown Marshals’ lyrics are never throwaway, the subject matter often obscure. World-weary yet uplifting melodies are channelled via strident guitars and gorgeous vocal harmonies, offset by beautiful keyboard parts and driven by a rock-solid rhythm section. Once referred to as ‘The Masters of Midtempo’, the band can also deftly turn their hand to heart-warming, uplifting powerpop.
