It feels like forever since Marmozets released their awesome debut The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets back in 2014. What an amazing album that was! Naturally, I've been really looking forward to Knowing What You Know Now, especially since the release of a couple of singles late last year.

Listening to this new record makes it obvious why they went off the radar for a while. The album is very strong throughout, and they've clearly taken their time to get every aspect of it right, from song writing through to production.

It's a noisy rock record, sizzling with Punk energy and attitude, like Biffy Clyro jamming with Siouxsie Sioux on speed. This distorted guitar-driven bouncy Rock, coupled with lead singer Becca Macintyre's wonderfully brattish vocals, make Marmozets genre defying and enables them to cross over into multiple scenes, helping them to continually grow their fan base at an impressive rate.

Singles like Habits and Play are absolute gold. They're insanely catchy, danceable, and fantastic examples of contemporary British Rock at its finest.

In addition to the riotous tracks, plenty of other musical avenues are explored, such as on the trippy Insomnia, the chilled, dreamy Me & You, and the slightly more relaxed, Indie-friendly Run with the Rhythm.

Knowing What You Know Now is an interesting, youthful album full of dynamics that you can listen to in its entirety, then play it all again! The time and hard work they've put into it has really paid off, as they've created not only a 'filler free' album, but one with the potential for real longevity. I think it's safe to say that this record will be hogging my car stereo for quite some time.
