Track of the Day: Nautical Mile “Marionette” (2019)

Perth pop-punkers Nautical Mile have just dropped their latest single, “Marionette“, and it’s a belter!

Since forming in 2015, the band have released two killer EPs, and shared stages with the likes of Trophy Eyes, Hellions, Hawthorne Heights and The Decline. Consisting of Brodi Owen on vocals, Dan Ray on guitar, Caleb Wynter on drums, and Nick Henrisson on bass, the guys are currently gearing up for an August tour, in support of new single “Marionette”.

“Marionette” tackles dysfunctional families, and the power dynamics at play between aggressor and victim. Owen explains:

“The particular relationship described [in the song] features the aggressor attempting to mold their child into their vision of the person they want them to be, with the child acting to rebel against this push. This is the inspiration for the puppetry/the marionette; the aggressor in the relationship is pulling the strings to try and force the actions of the other.”
