They’re still genre-twisting, but their focus has shifted slightly from complexity to short, punchy riffs that recall some of the bands that producer Gil Norton has worked with previously: Pixies, Foo Fighters, The Distillers.
The Guardian
There are still plenty of their trademark screams, distorted guitars and blast beats, which enthusiastically nip at pop like a pack of pesky Jack Russells. However, the rapidly maturing band are also dabbling with rave-type breakdowns, euphoric pop rushes, and even – in Me and You – a (gulp) tender ballad about dreams of a better world.
For every radio-ready chorus, there’s a fascinating tangent, and plenty of pointers towards Marmozets being the most important rock band we have.
The Line of Best Fit

Knowing What You Know feels like a journey, one that’s filled with mountainous climbs and treacherous lows, each to be consumed with reckless abandon, because that’s exactly what Marmozets are - a force to be reckoned with.

Drowned in Sound
Marmozets are a band that thrive on angst. They deliver it through the raw nature of their sound, through their acute lyrics and pounding metalcore-slash-pop-punk. It can feel at times, though, of too much of an exhilarating ride, an endless roller coaster that doesn’t provide enough respite.
Cuando Marmozets juguetea completamente con la ira, logra ser todo lo que se propone. Las producciones sucias se ensalzan en guitarras delirantes y bajos psicodélicos. E incluso aunque extrañemos los ritmos ambiciosos de batería, el hipnótico labor instrumental que el sofomoro pone en juego se conjuga para dar en una excelente mezcla de energía, vitalidad y juventud.

Whilst What You Know Now strays from the beaten, genre based path at multiple occasions, Marmozets are a band that are focused & on task; they want to be one of the biggest & brightest bands in the United Kingdom, and with their sophomore album, they’re a huge step towards that goal.
They really have changed since their incredible debut. There's less intensity and the complex math rock riffs are basically gone for the favor of straightforward and polished alternative rock (though it might sound a bit overproduced here and there). But I think they nailed this one too, It's still has amazing songwriting and a huge replay value.
Favorites: Habits, Meant to Be, New Religion, Play, Major System Error and Insomnia.
