Drawing inspiration from bands like Alter Bridge and Evanescence, Marisa And The Moths have created a sound that is both familiar and innovative. Drawing inspiration from pop-infused alt rock bands like Paramore and Flyleaf, ‘SAD’ is an exploration of the unspoken struggles beneath a seemingly content exterior.

On the single, Marisa comments, “This song is about the shame of feeling sad while projecting a different narrative to the outside world. It’s the challenge of wearing a happy face while, internally, your world feels like it’s falling apart. I wrote this song when I found myself in a situation where, despite logically recognizing things to be grateful for, I couldn’t escape those overwhelming emotions. When I’ve opened up to people in the past, they have inadvertently belittled how I felt, saying things like ‘it’ll pass’ or ‘focus on the positive.’ Sometimes all you want is to feel heard or listened to, but societal norms often mean that surface-level observations define how we are perceived. I think this is a universal situation that all of us find ourselves in at times, regardless of your social standing, wealth, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation.”

‘SAD’ is another taste of what fans can expect from Marisa And The Moths‘ forthcoming second album. The album promises a collection of dynamic and diverse tracks that showcase the band’s growth and musical evolution.

Known for their electrifying live performances, Marisa And The Moths have built a loyal and dedicated fanbase. Their ability to connect with audiences through their music and energetic stage presence has earned them a reputation as one of the most exciting rock bands on the alt-scene today.

Their debut self-titled LP hit #66 in the Official Downloads Chart and has amassed hundreds of thousands of streams globally – as well as rave reviews from Kerrang!, Classic Rock, BBC Radio 2 Rock Show, and many more.

Marisa And The Moths are a group who bring to mind the best hard rock and grunge bands of the 90s, all while adding their own modern twist. Turning heads with their alternative rock sound and powerhouse vocals, frontwoman Marisa‘s raw and honest lyrics make for a unique and compelling listen.

Listeners can expect both hope and despair as they navigate through each track.

The band kicked off 2023 with their Damned If I Do EP, featuring singles ‘Wither Away‘, ‘Pedestal‘, and ‘If You Knew‘, giving listeners a taste of what’s to come with their forthcoming second album. 

With previous headline tours under their belt, support slots for artists like Kris Barras Band, Von Hertzen Brothers, Those Damn Crows, Elvana and As December Falls as well as appearances at festivals like 2000 Trees, Planet Rockstock and Primordial Radio’s General Mayhem, Marisa And The Moths have proven themselves to be a top-tier live act.
