FOWL SWOOP is latest album from MarineVille. Each vinyl LP boasts a cover hand-screenprinted by the band themselves.http://marinevillenz.bandcamp.com/ "It's almost like the greats of alt-rock and new-wave have come together, asked Marineville to perform their tracks, and add that Flying-Nun, Dunedin sound to them." Dunedinmusic.com
Stefanimal - "Like Pet Shop Boys high on nitrous. A sensitive, ethereal keyboard driven singer/songwriter adventure - intelligent lyricism, new-wave/new romantic/electro-pop angst underneath a haunting alter-boy-on-smack voice...perhaps goth, perhaps too subtle to be goth" - Crude
