Marmozets: The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets


There’s something very  heartwarming about the Marmozets.

Doubtless their growing legion of teenage fans would disagree, but as a forty-something parent, the concept of two sets of siblings coming together to make such a glorious racket as they do is marvellously sweet.

It’s not just that, though; the band’s music, full of loud guitars and angsty lyrics,  may not be anything remotely new but it’s done with an innocence and enthusiasm that only the young truly possess.

Visceral thrill rides such as  Born Young and Free and Hit the Wave are the fun-filled blasts  you’d expect from a group of young metallers, but there’s a grown up maturity to be found here too.

Cry and Back to You especially showcase the band’s ear for a melody – which, to be fair, is audible on pretty much every song – and versatile singer Becca’s  vocals, one minute raw and angry, the next feminine and pleading.

It’s an excellent start.
