“The honesty of ‘Sink Or Swim’ only adds to the many layers of what makes Marlin’s Dreaming who they are. If the following tracks are anything like the first, then Quotidian is a record that should be on any music-lover’s radar.”

iery composition that squalls with melodic precision.”

Marlin’s Dreaming is making the kind of music that’s chilled-out and calming,
while incorporating enough flashes of energy to keep you moving.”

the best memories in your life. It’s a song full of independence and a
motivator for you to get out and explore the beautiful earth on a sunny day.”

Marlin’s Dreaming BIO:

Marlin’s Dreaming are a young band hailing from a cold, damp flat in Dunedin, New Zealand. In October 2017, just a couple of months after forming, Marlin’s Dreaming released their first body of work, Lizard Tears. 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. This EP received support from popular Spotify and Apple playlists and Youtube Channels.

2019 proved to be another successful year, doing support slots with Kirin J Callinan, The Chills and Ocean Alley. They also managed to fit in three headline tours of their own, including 2 sold out runs in Australia.

Marlin’s Dreaming are releasing their upcoming LP, Quotidian, on April 24th 2020.
