After playing some of the big leagues, Reading and Leeds festival and radio one’s live lounge to name a few the marmozets ‘ debut album the weird and wonderful marmozets has had punk rock fans sitting on the edge of their seats in anticipation for months. The album-which dropped on iTunes just last month- is cram packed with crescendos and vocals that will give you goosebumps they’re just that good. The album starts with born young and free, a song that just screams teenage anthem and prepares us for the greatness that is to come along with the rest of the record. The album varies its tracks from calm and catchy to giving you the urge to run around naked while screaming at the top of your lungs I JUST DON’T GIVE A F*CK . Drummer Josh Macintyre has serious talent and doesn’t fail to show this in every song including my personal favourite cover up while sister Becca gives the entire album what it needs- a steer into a less mainstream genre.
Overall the album isn’t the most original with a paramore feel evident right from the beginning however this album symbolises that the belief that pop punk is dead is ludicrous and gives us the hope that the next few years in the music industry won’t be full of wannabe one direction’s. If you’re looking for an album that continuously features single worthy tracks then this is exactly what you need to buy and the fact that this is a debut album just puts the cherry on top. Definitely a 5/5.
