The band is best known for their hit "Sex and Candy". Named for the formative location in lead singer John Wozniak's childhood, the Marcy Open grade school in Minneapolis, Marcy Playground emerged in the late s. They had been influenced heavily by Kurt Cobain and his band Nirvana.
It is a post-grunge song with psychedelic elements that features bass guitar and drums. Lead singer John Wozniak was inspired to write the song after a woman told him that a room smelled like "sex and candy.

The band, which also includes bassist Dylan Keefe and drummer Dan Rieser, released its second album, Shapeshifter, Tuesday. That night at the Mercury Lounge, Marcy Playground did their best to back up Wozniak's claim with a club gig that showed off the LP's diversity.

During the band's sharply executed minute set, Wozniak's longing ballads were consistently more engaging than his mildly quirky, moderately rocking songs.
