Marco With Love is a gritty rock ‘n roll band whose new EP, Promised Land, presents a classic-sounding mix of sounds that has been compared to everyone from the Ramones to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. In the words of Yahoo! Music, “Marco With Love may be out of the Big Apple, but the band’s old-school, reverb-soaked vibe is straight out of Los Angeles’s Laurel Canyon.” The site has a stream of the EP’s title track, which you can hear here.
Bandleader Marco Argiro recently gave an interview with The Angle in which he describes the band’s sound as “foot-stompin’, ass-shakin’, hook laden, country fried rock n’ roll.” Elsewhere in the interview, Argiro makes confessions about his dream collaborators and dream venue while explaining how the band has been able to balance tribute with originality on recent covers by the likes of Petty and Townes Van Zandt.
