Live Review: Lonely The Brave, Marmozets and Allusondrugs - Rock City Basement, Nottingham - 11/10/2014

After playing a plethora of festivals and having both recently released critically acclaimed debut albums, there could be no better time to see Lonely The Brave and Marmozets. But before the co-headliners we have Allusondrugs. The long-haired Yorkshire five piece provide a strong set with their mix of grungy rock with a hint psychedelica. Throughout they are energetic and showcase their melodic edge to an appreciative crowd. Although they’re far from extraordinary, Allusondrugs have a good foundation to progress in the coming months. (2.5/5)

24 hours removed from playing London’s Scala venue, it could be considered Marmozets are winding things down having played the nations capital. However they’re more than willing to provide a show to this sold out crowd. From the opening moments of 'Born Young and Free', the Leeds band feed off the crowd’s adrenaline. Tracks like ‘Is It Horrible’ have an underlying groove that give way to a huge chorus that is made for an intimate setting like tonight’s. Recent single 'Captivate You' is sung in unison, ‘Why Do You Hate Me?’ is as explosive as the first time we heard it and 'Hit The Wave' is simply powerful with its soaring chorus and spiralling guitar work. The growth of Marmozets has been astounding and tonight showcases how far they’ve come. A thoroughly satisfying set that left us wanting more. (4.5/5)
