  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Three studio albums into the Wynntown Marshals’ career, the band mark a decade together with the release of a new album entitled “After All These Years”.

    Primarily a retrospective look back at some of the recorded highlights of the past ten years, the 16-track collection also includes 3 new, previously unreleased, tracks which set the scene for the next chapter in the band’s history.

    There’s something for everyone on this collection. Early story songs such as the epic “11:15” (which tells the tale of the greatest flood in modern UK history which took place in rural Aberdeenshire) lock horns with the criminally-overlooked 2009 B-side “The Burning Blue”.

    The reworking of early EP track “Different Drug” (recorded by the current line-up, featuring a sublime extended outro), the country-shuffle of “Snowflake” (possibly the only Americana song about an albino gorilla in existence) and the sprawling, stellar live favourite “Tide” are all wonderful examples of the unique sound that the Marshals have created and honed over the last 10 years.

    The lyrics are never throwaway, the subject matter often obscure. World-weary yet uplifting melodies are channelled by strident guitars and gorgeous vocal harmonies, offset by beautiful keyboard parts and driven by a rock-solid rhythm section.

    Once referred to as ‘The Masters of Midtempo’, the band can also deftly turn their hand to heart-warming, uplifting power pop.

    “After All These Years” is by turns a celebratory, cerebral, nostalgic and just downright joyous collection. It acts as a retrospective, a potted history, a memoir of a decade of making music and as the perfect nod to what the future holds in store for this most resolute and hard-working of bands.

lyrics

Your Time

We used to drink 'til it was light outside
We used to bark at the moon
But now with different priorities
We sing a different tune

You never wear your hair in the current fashion
My dress sense is out of time
Every song and every melody
Eventually gets etched into our minds

I wrote these words for you
What have you done for me?
Tired of being kept waiting behind the courtesy line
Is it wrong to want a little more of your time?

I thought you were more superstitious than me
But here I am again in 7C
Looking down the aisle every once in a while
Just looking for your smile

She travels everywhere that I travel
I always keep a part of him beside of me
OK, maybe these gifts that we gave to the world are worth a drink or three

I wrote these words for you
What have you done for me?
Tired of being kept waiting behind the courtesy line
Is it wrong to want a little more of your time?
Tired of being kept waiting behind the courtesy line
Is it wrong to want a little more of your time?

about

The Wynntown Marshals Edinburgh, UK

Formed in Edinburgh in 2007, The Marshals tip their hat to The Jayhawks, Wilco, Drive-By Truckers, Tom Petty, Ryan Adams & Neil Young.

Their sound can loosely be described as ‘country rock' with powerpop hooks, but they love layered guitars, catchy choruses and have an unabashed belief in the power of rock music as a storytelling medium.

The new album "The Long Haul" is out now!
