Marmozets – The Weird And Wonderful Marmozets
Album review of The Weird And Wonderful Marmozets.
One of the more promising British bands of late, Marmozets are set to release their debut album, The Weird And Wonderful Marmozets. It’s a rollercoaster of alternative rock, mathcore, and edgy vocals – you won’t be disappointed.
If you’re already familiar with the band, you’ll know they’ve had quite a bit of success already, leading to the hype of this album. If you have no idea who Marmozets are, here’s a good chance to see what all the fuss has been about. I’d strongly suggest that you take it.
Lead vocalist, Becca Macintyre, has the ability to seamlessly switch vocal styles at a moment’s notice, which is evident through the entire album. While the first track, ‘Born Young And Free’ sees her screaming down the mic to her heart’s content, ‘Captivate Me’ shows a more soothing element to her vocals and the band’s sound, yet the tracks remain just as powerful.
‘Why Do You Hate Me?’ is the best song – it’s one of those tunes that you’ll more than likely keep going back to; it’s catchy, a bit dark, and boasts plenty of energy. Through well thought-out guitar riffs and breakdowns, the album is brimming with juice and the ceaseless sound of hard-hitting drums – easily enough to get you dancing around your house like a maniac.
