Spookyland is the cacophonous creation of star-crossed Sydney dweller, Marcus Gordon who joined Monday Records in November 2013. The studio debut single, The Silly Fucking Thing explores the frontman’s paranormal ability for story telling, akin to Bob Dylan paired with the volatility of Nick Cave.

Melancholic harmonica bounces off guitar reverb to build tension that is only escalated by the brazen vocals of the 22-year old, producing a track that we dare you not to be moved by. His enigmatic stylings come to life in his poignant live delivery with four-piece band.

The EP, due out later this year traverses genres. Dark blues blend with country whilst an underlying textured pop sensibility keeps these ear worms wriggling around long after you’ve pulled off your headphones.

Recent Praise for Spookyland

“That voice—adenoidal, snarling, and echoing like Jeff Mangum singing inside of a beer can”


“If you have recently broken up with your significant other… your cat/dog/hamster/Tamagotchi recently died, someone yelled “twat” at you while you were driving, or you simply didn’t have enough spare for an extra latte this morning and feel a little grumpy, then this track is for you”


“This is music to be listened to over and over, take from it what you will, just take from it”


“Meet Sydney’s very own Bob Dylan”
