MarthaGunn consists of five best friends - Abi, Max, Humphrey, Ally and Frankie. They take inspiration from the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Mystery Jets and Haim, and over the course of 2019 have been sharpening their live show. They travelled the length and breadth of the UK on their first ever headline tour, were hand-picked by Steven Knight to play Peaky Blinder’s Festival, and made appearances at the likes of The Great Escape, Bushstock, and Citadel Festival. The band have also garnered support from John Kennedy at Radio X and performed at his X-Posure Live event this summer alongside Mystery Jets.
“I am not comfortable being comfortable. I always want more. Sometimes I don’t know whether to accept the beauty of simplicity or to self-sabotage to find something greater. When I wrote ‘Heaven’, I was playing out a fantasy in my head and exploring a path I could only dream of taking. A few years on and I have stopped living in fantasies. I go after everything my soul desires. Heaven is a song for anyone at a cross roads. Longing for more but afraid to step into the unknown.”
