Kevin, Ean and Nick all met while attending Renaissance School for the arts. They later met Matt after a battle of the bands.

With Songs out like Skeletal System and White Raven the band has earned comparison to contemporary bands such as Editors and Interpol as well as ancestors like Joy Division.

Ean Brown has been playing guitar for years and was influenced by old rock idols like David Bowie which sneaks into the rhythm of the songs. Matt's punchy and heavy bass leads most of the songs as if it were the lead instrument. All of this powered by the heart pounding drums of Nick. Combining influences from each band member The Marital has created a unique sound.
