Swedish group Marching Band is comprised of the simple guitar and drum pairing of Erik Sunbring and Jacob Lind — both of whom contribute vocals on their first full length album entitled Spark Large.

Formerly known as Second Language, the duo realized their musical affinity while attending college. It was at that creatively fertile time that they began to stray from the guitars and drum and embarked on recordings which experimented with an array of atypical indie-pop instruments. The result is found in their eclectic 12 track album Spark Large, where xylophones, banjos, marimbas and vibraphones are all freely put to work.
