While you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, it’s often possible to glean a lot about an album from its title.
Take the 2014 debut album from the MARMOZETS – Becca MacIntyre, Sam MacIntyre, Josh MacIntyre, Jack Bottomley and Will Bottomley – a band that’s more than a gang: they’re quite literally family. “THE WEIRD AND WONDERFUL MARMOZETS” perfectly encapsulated the unpredictable yet undeniable music the Bingley band had been creating since their inception. “THE WEIRD AND WONDERFUL MARMOZETS” arrived via Roadrunner in 2014 and was greeted with unprecedented acclaim from a range of international publications. “As fine an articulation of the thrills, spills and general confusion of being young and different in the U.K. as you're likely to hear,” exclaimed Kerrang! before honoring “THE WEIRD AND WONDERFUL MARMOZETS” as the year’s “Best Album” at the 2015 Kerrang! Awards. Q applauded the album as, “a very impressive, ambitious debut,” while Noisey highlighted vocalist Becca MacIntyre as someone who “…could be instrumental in a big change for British rock." 2017 marked the return of the MARMOZETS with their new single, ‘Play,’ which earned the unprecedented accolade of being declared both Radio 1’s Daniel P. Carter’s ‘Rockest Record’ and Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record’. NME highlighted ‘Play’ as one of their best new tracks and added, “The Brit alt-rockers return and they’re sounding absolutely massive.”
