An EP launch, the release of their first ever music video and a bright year ahead with festivals and gigs galore, 2013 is not going to be so unlucky for Cheltenham band Welcome to Marathon. First stumbling upon them at the Oxjam Cheltenham takeover I fell in love with their romantic yet punchy melodies, on stage energy and knack for getting a crowd going with their sound that encapsulates music of a by-gone time with a contemporary twist. Launching part one of their three part EP earlier this year I spoke to frontman Pete Hick about their style, songs and why they’re a band that parents in particular have a soft spot for.
Check out Welcome to Marathon’s first music video for their track Belfour.
