Marmozets announce new album, Play

By | Published on Thursday 12 October 2017


Marmozets have announced their return with second album ‘Play’, which is set for release in January. Don’t expect the record to pander to your desires though.

“We created the album for ourselves”, says guitarist Sam MacIntyre. “It’s not that we don’t care about our fans – we absolutely love them – but the reason they like what we do is because of the way we are”.

Vocalist Becca MacIntyre adds: “We don’t do things because they’re cool; we do them because they feel right”.

This strategy of being uncool and not listening to fans does seem to have paid off, because first single ‘Habits’ is brilliant. You can watch the video for that right here:
