Following their triumphant return with their newest smash record, Knowing What You Know Now, Marmozets are back on the rock scene like never before. Tonight when they play an absolutely rammed Concorde 2, the evening is full of nothing but excitement, heavy riffs and the most beautiful vocal performance of the year.
Momentum. It is normally an essential element for new bands, forming the main reason (alongside cash) why labels push and prod artists into a vicious circle of album/tour/album/tour. So when Marmozets were forced to take a two-year break after their thrilling (and award-winning) 2014 debut The Weird And Wonderful Marmozets due to an injury to singer Becca Macintyre, there were genuine worries about what the future contained. As well as this, the sad passing of Becca’s (and of course guitarist Sam and drummer Josh’s) grandmother added tragedy on top of an already testing time. So there was much delight and relief when last year’s thrilling comeback single ‘Play’ was released, and that will be further heightened by an exceptional second album.
