    "Wellington band MarineVille formed in 2000 around songwriter and guitarist Mark Williams and developed a sound capable of encompassing lush textures and edgier noises over careful pop songs and occasional sprawling epics. Their third album, Foul Swoop, described by Williams as having “strings, horns, rockin' tunes and dark ballads”, was hailed by Grant Smithies as “a gloriously abrasive mix of rumbling bass, overdriven guitars and half spoken vocals”. Soon after its release, they were joined by bass player Denise Roughan (ex-Look Blue Go Purple and 3Ds)." (NZ On Screen summary)

    "When photographer John Lake offered to collaborate with Wellington band MarineVille, the song he chose was ‘Time’: a meditation on the relentless ways that time plays out in our lives taken from their third album Fowl Swoop. The resulting video, shot around the suburb of Newtown over three hours, stars drummer Greg Cairns desperately attempting to flee the inevitable march of time — only to get his comeuppance from the grim reaper, a room full of people he offended along the way (“Vitutaa” is Finnish for “We are annoyed”) and a catering pack of cream." (NZ On Screen summary)
