Marmozets – The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets

Marmozets – The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets

The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets sounds like the title of a fairytale.

The opener of ‘Born Young and Free; writhes with the self-assurance normally reserved for the end of the story while the confrontational ‘Why Do You Hate Me?’ is a deft showdown with the obstacles of life.

The overarching celebration of youthful defiance stands shoulder to shoulder with the guttural call to arms that the constant rise of the album incites. ‘Vibetech’ harks back to a Marmozets of a long time ago, but it’s the constant forward motion that makes their debut such a seductive proposition.

Becca takes centre stage on ‘The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets’ weathering the chaotic breakdowns and riffs that crash from all sides while taking on the role of perpetual siren. Serene and beautiful vocals one moment, terrifying blood lust the next. It doesn’t matter if she’s screaming for answers or begging for unity, her captivating performance is show stopping.

Stars need a stage to shine on and the instrumentals provide a vibrant turntable of texture and movement. Whether the slowburn of ‘Cry’ or the illuminating flames of ‘Move, Shake, Hide’ this is sort of coherent, considered and intelligent album that’ll have people asking questions about when, not if Marmozets will blow up. The answer lies in every glorious moment of The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets. They already have. It’s just a matter of fall out now. Happily ever after.
