On September 29. 2014, Marmozets released their debut album, The Weird And Wonderful Marmozets. Now, we have to admit -this was our introduction to the band, and they actually were the exact opposite of what was expected. For some reason, we were not expecting a female fronted metal core, but rather some sort of indy pop band. What we received was much better than the expectation.
The band sounds a bit like a mix between Paramore and In This Moment and they did a wonderful job. Through out the album, there's several tracks that encourage people to just keep going and live their life for them. Those tracks include, "Born Young And Free", "Cover Up", and their beautiful piano track, "Cry."
"Cry" actually encourages people to keep moving forward even when they feel like giving up, and tries to show them they are so much more than they may think. "You are invincible, shining like a heart of gold." That alone is rather beautiful on its own, but another part spoke volumes. "Lost in life, feeling free. Why we cry -unity. Holding on what has gone. When we blame ones at home. Hand and hand, you will see, you can stand truthfully. Pushing on is so good. Fight your wars, don't leave blood. Cut your shame from the vane. Now you know in your heart -life's too short to fall apart."
That is beautiful, and we highly recommend everyone look up that song. While you're at it, you may as well listen to the rest of the album, which is available now wherever music is sold.
If you like what you hear and wish to catch Marmozets live in concert, they will be on tour with Nothing More here very shortly on the Outbreak tour, and will be at several festivals such as the Reading Festival, Leeds Festival, Riot Festival, Louder Than Life and Rock Allegiance. For more information, please visit the official website for Marmozets.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
