* Pre-orders coming soon
* Tour dates announced
Brooklyn, NY’s Marine Electric have announced a Summer Tour in support of their fortcoming debut full-length, Restrained Joy. The album will be available soon on CD / 12″ vinyl and is a split release by Insrgnt and Unbuckled Records.
Restrained Joy can be streamed in its entirety on Punknews as well. The band cleverly skirts the line between indie, punk and emo. Fans of Braid, Hey Mercedes, Bear Vs. Shark and Small Brown Bike will find much to love on Restrained Joy.
The members of Marine Electric have been friends since highschool, playing music in their parents’ basements and learning how to be human together. The band officially started in winter of 2007 slowly carving out their sound over the years, releasing a hand full of EPs along the way. They grew up on Long Island then relocated to Brooklyn in 2008 where they have been playing and hosting shows alongside their best friends.
Restrained Joy represents the sum of all of Marine Electric’s previous releases, musically, lyrically and emotionally. The theme: in the end the only person who can hold someone back from happiness is one’s self. Each song explores the different ways in which we deal with life’s obstacles and the observations we make as we constantly shift from moment to moment.
