Review: Marmozets - Vexed
The performance across the EP is relentless as the band choose to tear their way through the seven tracks as violently as possible and crunch, growl and pummel their way through the journey. The guitar work of Jack Bottomley and Sam Macintyre reveal their ability to play with intensity and technical skill as tracks are filled with juddering structural patterns and time signature switches reveals their ability to be more rhythmically complex which, above all else in impressive for people who are at an age of starting their first year in high school.
Also impressive is the vocal performance of frontwoman Becca Macintyre who unleashes her furious growling with immense fury and passion which is at times comparable to the leviathan growling of Rolo Tomassi's Eva Spence. Plus during the group's more melodic moments her cleaner vocals manage to be more prominent, which are actually very pretty. Well, as pretty as punk chanting can get.
So, Marmozets seem to be getting a lot of hype and a continuously larger following as we speak and with the talent of taking complexity and melody, mixing it together and still managing to sound wilder and more over-the-top than any fellow peers makes this an understandable cause. This EP has the sound of the be-all-and-end-all to punk music. And we still have to brace ourselves for an album of insanity!
Marmozets Vexed is out now.
