Marty – Worst Case Scenario

A band that I’d not heard of previously, Marty are a young three-piece pop act from Nottingham made up of Aimee, Krista & Rhianne and not to be confused with the fabulous Birmingham drag queen Miss Marty.

For a young band who cite their influences as a number of punk/pop bands (Busted, McFly etc) it was clear that their new single ‘Worst Case Scenario’ is heavily reminiscent of another of their influences, the classic five member line up of the pop era Fleetwood Mac.

With it’s accomplished sound and tight chorus harmonies, this song has a maturity which belies the girls obvious youth. But it also has a blend of younger pop giving it a freshness that a more mature act lacks, think post Go-Gos early solo era Belinda Carlisle perhaps.

It’s definitely got me wanting to hear more from Marty.

Worst Case Scenario is released on July 6th.
