Hi Becca! Marmozets are back! How exciting is that?!

It’s sick, we’re so excited to get out there again. We had our first few practices together, and it’s been incredible. It’s been a while, but it’s been worth that while to get fully prepared. Playing Reading & Leeds right at the start of the comeback as well, it’s like coming back to our roots - like returning to university or something.

Tell us a bit about your comeback single, ‘Play’.

Everything that it says to me to begin with - starting with “1, 2, 3, play” - it’s a comeback song. It was definitely the one that we wanted to release first just to show everyone where we’ve gone with the second album. It’s a weird and wonderful record. Each song shouldn’t connect to each other, when you listen to them separately, but it still works and it’s still awesome.

And it’s good to be playing live again?

So, so good, and so important. There’s something you can’t replicate about being face to face with a band and really learning about the songs, especially when they haven’t been released yet. It keeps everything fresh and exciting. People have to realise that we’re not exactly the same people that left for tour the first time around, but it’s still us, and we’ve all grown up and are so ready to do this again. It’s all of us together again, it’s Marmozets, it’s happening, and that’s all we could ask for.

How was the process of making the new album?

I definitely had moments where I was at peace [with the album]. It was great to have that. You’re so determined that you’ll always get stressed out and annoyed at yourself a bit over the process, but you keep going, and end up doing something quite awesome, which you’ll never regret. We’re perfectionists, and I still listen back and want to tweak things, even though I absolutely love the record. Sometimes I get a bit told off about those things, but the excitement’s so high that I can’t help but constantly think about it.
