One of the most hotly tipped bands of the year, Marmozets live up to expectations with a style that mixes up a range of different types of rock to make their own unique sound. Yes, it's easy on first listen to name the bands that have, possibly, influenced Marmozets but the way they put all those influences together, sometimes in the same song, is near genius and takes some serious talent and, obviously, love for the music they're representing.
It's Becca Macintyre's vocals you notice first, her accent showing on a few tracks(no bad thing) but she shows depth, power and versatility throughout the album(compare Cry and Vibetech for proof) and, as a female fronting a hard rock/metal band, will no doubt be the focal point in interviews, on stage etc. but the other four members shine throughout to, melding punk/pop/metal/rock n' roll with some tech/math-core thrown in with a drop of indie-rock to, sometimes with overwhelming results.
Personal favourites include Born Young and Free, Why Do You Hate Me?, Particle and pure filth that is Vibetech, but this is an album full of highlights with something for everyone. An awesome new band that deserve their chance to shine.
