MARCUS WYNWOOD
MAKES HIS MARK WITH NEW SINGLE/VIDEO
'SOMETHING IN MY EYE'

SOMETHING IN MY EYE IS OUT FRIDAY 26 NOVEMBER 2021
THROUGH COLLISION COURSE/MGM DISTRIBUTION
Long-term fans of Captives will recognise the name Marcus Wynwood. For close to a decade, he toured, wrote and riffed with the band, but now the songweaver has stepped out on his own...

Tasmanian musician Marcus Wynwood has returned to release music under his own steam and moniker. His brand new single 'Something in my Eye' is out now through Collision Course and MGM Distribution and is available on all major streaming platforms here: http://ffm.to/somethinginmyeye.

The new single was Written, Performed, and Recorded by Marcus, Mixed by Jon Grace (Bakers Eddy, Dear Seattle) and Mastered by Samuel K Sproull (The Getaway Plan, Bodyjar).

Marcus opened up about the meaning of the track. "The song is influenced by anxiety and feeling that you’re not enough or that you’ve missed your shot. It's a commentary of overcoming feelings of inadequacy and that no one cares. Feeling like you are yesterdays news, or feeling like you couldn't do it. In the song I say that these feeling are "never gonna stop me". I couldn't see what I was capable of, because these feelings were blinding me - there was something in my eye. So I see it as a positive, healing, liberating song. Always trust yourself and just go for it."

The video for the single was shot in Penguin, Tasmania at the base of Mount Montgomery, and also at Wings Wildlife Park, where he and the director (David Sturges from DAS Productions) was granted access to shoot footage with the Tasmanian Devils. Marcus acknowledges and pays respect to the Tasmanian Aboriginal people as the traditional and original owners of the land the music video was filmed on and thanks the wildlife park.

Marcus has a TONNE of arrows to his bow. He is a D'Addario Endorsed Artist, been featured in Australian Guitar as a Guitarist to Watch, performed on the main stage at Falls Festival, and toured Australia and Overseas. Marcus cowrote, toured, and played guitar on every Captives release from 2013 until 2020 - who were signed to Cooking Vinyl, Inertia Music, and The Harbour Agency. In 2018, Captives won a triple J competition to have a music video produced by National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) and were featured in Rolling Stone, had music videos played on rage and Channel [V],  and their music played on Triple J, Triple M, The Faction and more.

Add in that he is also an accomplished producer and that's a lot of feathers in his cap-with-very-little-real-estate-left - he has also produced and recorded a number of artists, including Alpha Wolf, Catchpenny, Justin Heazlewood, Ventilate and Mankind.

Marcus Wynwood's new single 'Something in my Eye' is out Friday November 26th through Collision Course and MGM Distribution and is available at http://ffm.to/somethinginmyeye to stream.
