Single Review – Marmozets – Play

After the resounding success of debut album, ‘The Weird And Wonderful Marmozets’ the Yorkshire quintet are back with punchy new single ‘Play’. The first offering from the band’s sophomore album, produced by Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters), ‘Play’ is a feisty kick, punch, and scream back into the limelight for the, still wonderful, Marmozets. Maintaining all the joy of their first album, with Becca Macintyre’s vocal as captivatingly brash and enticingly subtle as ever, while Jack Bottomley’s guitar, Josh Macintyre’s drums, Sam Macintyre’s rhythm guitar and Will Bottomley’s bass, show the siblings are only growing in their ability to supercharge an onslaught of exhilarating riffs and pounding choruses, with the kind of urgency that feels as though nothing is going to stop this band. Undeniably ‘Play’ is the promise of yet another intense stomper of an album, ‘1,2,3 Play!’
