Single Review: Marmozets – Move, Shake, Hide

By on Friday, 1st November 2013 at 12:00 pm

What sums up the youthful exuberance and blossoming success of the British hardcore/metal scene in 2013? Is it Bring Me the Horizon’s ‘Sempiternal’? Quite possibly. Is it the fact that Arcane Roots have just supported Muse on a stadium tour? Maybe. Or is it the fact that Bingley five-piece Marmozets have been signed to Roadrunner Records and with their new single ‘Move, Shake, Hide’ looks set to catapult them firmly in to the eyes of the great British public? Most definitely.

The rise of Marmozets over the past 2 and a half years has been a slow burner for the most, supplemented by some fearsome tour schedules. Over the last 10 months, though, Marmozets have encapsulated everything that is good about British metal at the moment: a fearlessness to experiment, an arrogance or confidence that can only be borne of youthful enthusiasm and raw talent. Probably the kind of mix Greg Dyke is looking for in the next generation of British footballers… In music though, we don’t get commissions and boards. But we are treated to, in much the same way as football, incredible breakthroughs that get us excited and have us off our seats.

While ‘Born Young and Free’ was probably that first goal which makes you take notice of them, ‘Move, Shake, Hide’ is that one of those feats of near brilliance which lets you know that there is something special. Becca Macintyre’s immense vocals are supplemented by a double guitar assault, with breakdowns that range from the heavy to the funky. I can pay testament to this track in a live arena is utter carnage; orchestrated by Miss Macintyre who is increasingly showing her credentials as the heir to the throne left vacant by Amy Lee – that of the faux-goth superstar.

Chuck in to the mixer that the hooks are despicably catchy, and it’s obvious that Marmozets are no longer new kids on the block. They’re ready to but their 18-year old noses in to the big leagues – at least now school is out.


‘Move, Shake, Hide’ will be Marmozets’ first single to be released on their new label Roadrunner Records on the 18th of November.
