The Mars McClanes Celebrates Summer With “Wherever You Go”

By Margaret Adams

Summer fun is the focus of Dallas-native band, The Mars McClane’s, new single “Wherever You Go.” The band has previously released two other singles, “The Worriers” and “Riddles.”

The Mars McClanes were originally playing throughout the local Dallas music scene in 2001, but was halted when guitarist Russ Chapman joined the military after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. After almost two decades of growing up and learning some of life’s greatest lessons, drummer Paul Constantine, frontman Brian Corley, and Chapman have reunited to release new music and unveil their new, more matured, era.

The single is the perfect alt-rock anthem for summer; it has an out-of-school energy that carries throughout with help from the electric guitar, pounding drums, and the lyrics. It encourages the listeners to roll the windows down and put their feet up, feeling the sunshine on their face.

“Every summer needs a song about the open road, and this is ours,” muses Corley. “This track sounds great with the windows down,” says Chapman. “Wars, divorces—those themes creep into other tracks—‘Wherever You Go’ says want what you’ve got now, and who you’re with.”

Fans of The Dandy Warhols, Fastball, and The Black Keys should check out The Mars McClanes’ new single “Wherever You Go,” available on your favorite streaming platform. Listen to this song and other great music on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture on Spotify.
