"Sometimes to move forward you have to burn it all down." This became the motto for Ernie Ball's Band Of The Year; Marina City. The Chicago sextet spent most of 2018 stripping themselves down to the core in order to craft the truest version of the band. The evolution led ATWOOD MAGAZINE to claim, "Marina City’s music is sexy and sensual, resplendent and vibey. They’re indie pop with an R&B twist, evoking the best of Prince, Michael Jackson, and The 1975 without sounding like anyone but themselves."
