This month’s featured track is “On My Mind” by locals Mark ii. The group is doing things in town that few others are doing. They’re building a scene around their music, characterized by late night parties that run well into the early morning hours. Lead songwriter Mark Howells cut his teeth in previous bands such as Potential Red, but is now exploring depths of new wave, electronic, and synth sounds mixed with more traditional instruments such as guitar and drums.
Don’t miss Mark ii headline with their explosive live set at the newly-renovated Club SAW this Friday, August 9 for the SUBVERSE UK Underground Dance Party. Mark ii will also be DJing a late-night house set late into the night. Find tickets and more info here.
