Is there a young British band with less riding on their shoulders than Marmozets? Sure, Royal Blood might’ve got a number 1 album in 2014, but the amount of reputations lying on the line where Marmozets are concerned is almost as long.
Marmozets are an English rock band from Bingley, West Yorkshire. Formed in 2007, the band consists of Rebecca 'Becca' Macintyre (vocals), Jack Bottomley (guitar), Sam Macintyre (guitar/vocals) Will Bottomley (bass/vocals) and Josh Macintyre (drums).
They released their first EP, Passive Aggressive in 2011 and followed that with Vexted in 2012. Marmozets signed to Roadrunner Records in October 2013 and released the singles Born Young and Free and Move, Shake, Hide that same year. Read more on Last.fm

The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets
29 September 2014
by Gavin Lloyd
There’s a fine art to writing great rock music. Let’s be honest, there are an awful lot of bands getting it wrong. Sometimes it can almost get too much and the urge to run off and go live in a cave, while taking up a radical new lifestyle, such as listening to Nicki Minaj on repeat, becomes ever more tempting. However every now and then something like this comes along to restore our faith.

There are over 200 artists performing at Reading Festival. Assuming you’re not one of those pricks that goes to a festival just to see the headliners, that’s a hell of a lot of bands you don’t (yet) give a shit about to trawl through in the hope of finding your new love. Plus, you’ve got a job, pubs exist and you don’t even have a tent yet, so time is in short supply. That’s why we exist. We’re here to make sure that you don’t settle on wandering around in a field, blindly hoping to stumble upon greatness but settling on Deaf Havana or, even worse… Mallory Knox. Here are our top tips. Some are new bands and others are just great. Also, there are 12.

It’s nice being in Soho on a Saturday night, eh? It’s even nicer when some excellent young bands have sold out The Borderline and you’ve got a ticket. That’s what happened, so here’s a review.
6 things we learnt when we saw Feed The Rhino in Soho…

If you get up very early in the morning, you’ll have spotted that Download Festival‘s head promoter, Andy Copping, announced another 22 bands for this year’s festival via his Twitter account this morning. And as you’d expect from such a large announcement, it’s a mix of old and new, big and small, and awesome and just plain awful.

Hyro Da Hero is heavy enough for us to feature him on Thrash Hits, right? That’s a rhetorical question, by the way. It wasn’t a request for people to go debate it in the comments or anything. Anyway, he’s got the more-than-excellent Marmozets playing in support of him on his UK tour, and given that we’ve expressed our love of that band on more than one occasion, we figured this was more than enough reason to make sure Gary Wolstenholme was on hand to photograph the whole shebang when it rolled into Sheffield.

We reckon we’re pretty good at finding new bands. Over the past few years we’ve championed Turbowolf, Bastions, Wolves Like Us and loads more before the rest cottoned on. That’s why you probably want to know what new bands we liked the most in 2011.
Maybe some of them will go on to become your favourite band of 2012. Maybe you already love them and this just reinforces the fact that you’re awesome. (If so, come and join us.) Just give the bands a listen. They’re worth it.

Thrash Hits Verdict:
At Hevy Festival we pointed out how “slick and frighteningly young” the “math-pop upstarts” are. An obvious comparison would be to the original female-fronted Yorkshire spazz-core quintet, Rolo Tomassi so we made that as well. It might be time for the slightly more tuneful Marmozets to steal some thunder.

They’ve done it. They’ve survived. Tomas Doyle and Ben Gibson have made it through to the other side of Hevy Festival 2011. Let’s see what they got up to on the third and final day of the festival….
