Marmozets at the O2 Forum-19/10/2018.

Friday night and its” Marmozets” time. A band with one raw breakthrough album delivered some years back (2014) and a second which ardent fans find a bit soft in comparison, although the song writing is clearly more mature. In the live setting all songs are delivered with the same level of passion and singer Becca has a great rangy voice which didn’t falter throughout despite the songs careering through a range of emotions.

Set List:

  1. Play
  2. Why Do You Hate Me?
  3. Like A Battery
  4. Particle
  5. Lost in Translation
  6. Habits
  7. Insomnia
  8. Weird and Wonderful
  9. We Are Strange

(New song)

  1. Captivate You
  2. Cry

(Live debut)

  1. Suffocation
  2. Is It Horrible
  3. New Religion
  4. Move, Shake, Hide
  5. Meant To Be
  6. Encore
  7. Run With The Rhythm
  8. Major System Error

Support was provided by Jamie Lenman who backed by a drummer played riff heavy tunes and got a reasonable amount of audience feedback for his efforts. Big crowd from the off at this gig and although busy was probably not sold out (?). I’ve definitely seen it busier although the beer seemed to be running out which meant the bar area not as full as normal.

At about 50 minutes into the headliners I did move from the crash barriers at the front to the back of the auditorium as I had a bit of attention span failure. Good solid performance and I would contemplate seeing them again, depending on venue.
