OUT 26 JAN­UARY York­shire brat-punks edge pop­wards. Rob­bie Wil­liams doesn’t have much form as a pop-punk taste-maker, tho ugh he ap­par­ently knows star qual­ity when he hears it. Wil­liams tweeted his ad­mi­ra­tion for Marmozets a cou­ple of years ago, and the Bin­g­ley four-piece seem to have ab­sorbed some of his pop nous in re­turn. While the band’s sec­ond al­bum doesn’t en­tirely jet­ti­son their abra­sive past, Play and the ef­fer­ves­cent Habits sweeten the pill with sugar-rush cho­ruses and sub­tle elec­tronic back­ground de­tail. But it’s singer Becca McIn­tyre who acts as a light­ning rod through­out, whoop­ing her way through Ma­jor Sys­tem Er­ror be­fore di­alling it down for In­som­nia and the plain­tive Me & You. Not so much a whole­sale rein­ven­tion as an im­pres­sive read­just­ment. DAVE EVERLEY Lis­ten To: Habits | In­som­nia | Me & You

Marmozets: so who’s the lead singer, then?
