2018 has seen Marmozets take a giant step forwards. Their second album, Knowing What You Know Now, was greeted with widespread critical acclaim, with many hailing the youthful quintet as a leading light of the modern British rock scene. That status has been underlined with the support of Radio 1 DJs Daniel P Carter, Annie Mac and Scott Mills.

Already confirmed to hit the road in April and May to warm-up for their main stage set at the Download Festival, Marmozets can now announce details of the biggest headline London show of their career so far.

Brijs Is Back With Jasmine

Pronounced ‘Bryce’, 27-year-old Londoner Brijs’ musical ventures place him apart from all those riding the conventional rehearse-gig-record-gig carousel. Sure, he’s walked those boards too, having played bass on stage and in the studio for Will Joseph Cook prior to the latter signing for Atlantic Records. But it’s his solo compositions, whether written for the screen or the wider pop market, which have been earning him acclaim.

Brijs’ debut EP, Friends, went straight into Spotify’s star-making Fresh Finds playlist, while another early demo, Thunder, was plucked by Strongbow for the cider giant’s 2016 commercials. Then there are Brijs’ film scores, his soundtracks including the 2016 short, We Love Moses, which recently won Best British Short at the London Critics Circle Film Awards, The Dinard British Film Festival and the Iris Prize Festival.

As for influences and inspirations, Brijs says he’s moved on from the downbeat and somewhat aloof indie-pop scene he once aspired to. “Over the past couple of years I’ve come to appreciate the heart on the sleeve approach — to embrace the cliché that was somehow more acceptable in the past,” he declares, citing a soundscape somewhere between indie pop and psych pop, featuring big hooks, led by guitar riffs, classic synths and drum machines. Specific touchstones encompass some Seventies and Eighties greats – Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, Springsteen, Paul Simon — alongside more contemporary acts ranging from The Shins, Tame Impala and Arcade Fire through to Father John Misty, Phoenix, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and beyond. With a debut album on its way and plenty more screen ventures to come, Brijs continues to make waves as a versatile musician, composer and producer, broadening the nation’s sonic architecture via whatever format presents itself.
