Marmozets - Habit

  • Published in Singles

 

Marmozets have managed to do remarkable things and create a huge name for themselves, despite only having one EP and their well received debut album The Weird And Wonderful under their belt. So their return after a hiatus of 3 years has had a lot of people itching to see if they were able to blow everyone’s minds as they did all those years ago.

This second new single effortlessly showcases Becca Macintyre’s voice which has somehow become even more impressive over the past couple of years. However, Macintyre’s screams, that used to have the toughest of metal vocalists quivering in their boots, have sadly gone and been replaced by some seriously high notes. Whilst this rather dramatic replacement leads to the track losing some of their edge, it does showcase some of her other vocal qualities and leaves us questioning what other little gems could crop up on the second album.

Whilst it may seem like a rather repetitive and unoriginal track for the Weird And Wonderful bunch, there’s still some raw qualities that gained them some of their fans within it. The unnerving opening which then slips into a bass heavy verse, to a soft bridge which encapsulates Macintyre’s new found high voice perfectly, into an upbeat pop chorus and back into the grunge infested verse. This is a song that holds so many different genre elements, but only one that Marmozets could somehow pull off whilst still sounding as gritty as they do.

Whilst this track sounds much more pop and mainstream that any of their earlier tracks, it is one that still holds some tiny, much loved Marmozets elements. However, the transformation from teenage thrash to mature Marmozets appears to have led to them losing some of the harshness and gritty female fierceness that everyone adored about them. However this is only the second track to be dropped by them before their highly anticipated second album, so that harshness could still return. Watch this space.

Habit is available via iTunes now. The Album Knowing What You Know Now comes out in January 2018.

Marmozets New Album Coming In January

  • Published in News

It’s been three years since Marmozets first broke through with their debut album, but the reaction to the first track to be taken from their second album, ‘Play’ feels as if they’d never been away. Now Marmozets add to their growing momentum with the news that their long-awaited second album Knowing What You Know Now will be released on January 26. Recorded with the legendary producer Gil Norton (Foo Fighters, Pixies), it’s the band’s most ambitious and accomplished offering to date.

To coincide with the album’s launch, Marmozets have shared another taster of the album in the shape of the new track ‘Habits’. It’s a danceable riff-fest which sees Becca adopt a dreamy, soaring vocal style – and is, explains Sam, “about certain people having certain habits that aren’t good, and getting very carried away.”

“We created the album for ourselves,” says rhythm guitarist Sam MacIntyre. “It’s not that we don’t care about our fans – we absolutely love them – but the reason they like what we do is because of the way we are.” Vocalist Becca MacIntyre adds, “We don’t do things because they’re cool; we do them because they feel right”

After returning with incendiary sets at the Reading and Leeds Festivals as well as a sold-out tour in August, Marmozets are about to embark upon a fresh headline tour. Demand for tickets saw their London show at the Garage sell-out weeks in advance, so an extra date has been added at ULU on February 7 to satisfy demand.

Consisting of two sets of siblings, the MacIntyres (Becca, Sam and drummer Josh) and the Bottomleys (lead guitarist Jack and bassist Will), Marmozets built a cult underground following with a series of independently released EPs. Their reputation exploded after they signed to Roadrunner Records and released their debut album The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets. Praised by Q, Noisey, NME and The Guardian, it also won Kerrang!’s coveted Album of the Year award.
