Marbled Eye are an Oakland post-punk band who play their music with a grim intensity. Their sound is stripped-back and riff-heavy, but they play fast and hard, like a hardcore band. Marbled Eye released their first longplayer after two EPs. " Leisure " contains nine songs that are mostly just under the 3-minute mark. Marbled Eye have a way of combining a Krautrock-style groove with angular, Wire-esque post-punk style riffing and wrapping the whole thing up in great pop songwriting.
