While you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, it’s often possible to glean a lot about an album from its title. Take the 2014 debut album from the MARMOZETS – Becca MacIntyre, Sam MacIntyre, Josh MacIntyre, Jack Bottomley and Will Bottomley – a band that’s more than a gang: they’re quite literally family. ‘THE WEIRD AND WONDERFUL MARMOZETS’ perfectly encapsulated the unpredictable yet undeniable music the Bingley band had been creating since their inception.
But what do you call the follow-up to a record which was described by Q magazine as “A very impressive, ambitious debut” and won the coveted Album Of The Year at the Kerrang! Awards, but has also seen its creators overcome personal hardships, learn valuable life lessons, and gain a sense of perspective? Knowing what the band knows now, it could only be called ‘KNOWING WHAT YOU KNOW NOW’. The presence of the legendary producer GIL NORTON (Foo Fighters, Pixies) at the helm ensures that this is the MARMOZETS’ most ambitious and accomplished offering to date.
