Marrow may be the new Chicago-based project of Liam Cunningham (guitar/vocals), Macie Stewart (keyboards/vocals), Lane Beckstrom (bass/vocals) and Matt Carroll (drums), but that doesn’t mean they haven’t been around for a long time. Not only were Cunningham, Stewart, and Beckstrom part of Kids These Days alongside Vic Mensa and The Social Experiment’s Donnie Trumpet, but they’ve also shared the stage with some of Chicago’s biggest music figures. Macie Stewart toured and performed alongside Chance the Rapper following the release of Acid Rap, and Liam Cunningham as been on the road throughout the last year with Tweedy. Born from eclectic experience, Marrow’s blues-infused pop rock is the work of established musicians redefining themselves once again. The group’s melodic range is encapsulated in their recently shared tracks, “Paulson,” and “Mother of Maladies”; the former is driven by quickened guitar and drums, while the latter is steeped in swooning keys and vocals.

Now, Marrow is excited to share a new video for “Paulson.” A mashup of Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom and an ’80s exercise montage, the video places the band in an intense workout scenario that takes several surprising turns. It’s also directed by Chicago’s Austin Vesely, known for his work with Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment and Chance The Rapper.

Next week, Marrow will head out on tour for the first time, with dates in Philadelphia, New York, andWashington DC. Watch the “Paulson” video below.

WHAT’S BEEN SAID ABOUT MARROW AND “PAULSON” 
“Marrow has refined and streamlined the sound of their previous band, sounding tighter and more confident… ‘Paulson’ is my favorite of the two songs that currently populate their SoundCloud page (though you can hear more if you dig a lil) because I have a weak spot for unabashed, barebones rock jams with simple, slightly distorted guitar riffs.” – Nerdist

“‘Paulson’, the latest single from their upcoming debut album, The Gold Standard (out soon), is a head-bumpin’ good time but mostly it’s a vessel for Stewart’s raw vocal abilities. “
