Indie-electro duo MRCH, hailing from Phoenix, released their new single “The Other Side” today and you can get your first taste of this whimsical synth-heavy number here:
Reflecting on the song’s inception, lead vocalist Mickey Pangburn muses,”‘The Other Side’ was written out of the same emotions that Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind evoke in me. Set to an almost Jock Jams groove (cause we’re full of contradictions)… And with reference to an Alice in Wonderland quote:
“What if I should fall right through the center of the earth… oh, and come out the other side, where people walk upside down.”

“The Other Side” is about being kind to ourselves & allowing room to see someone else’s perspective. It’s also the jumping off point for a slew of new songs we’ve been working on.”
MRCH can be heard on episodes of Shameless, 13 Reasons Why, Search Party, The Vampire Diaries, among other programs.
On Thursday, November 8, via Everything Ecstatic, they will join local darkwave duo NRVS LVRS and Portland-based Fringe Class at Amnesia, with DJ Bad Girl Bailey in the mix for a night of shimmering electro-rock and dance-y dream-pop.
