You may have noticed that they're a Band of Relatives, only in an interesting twist — they're two different sets of siblings.
Move, Shake, Tropes
- Band of Relatives: Two different sets of siblings make up this band. They themselves said they're like a family.
- Everyone Went to School Together: They've been around since they were in school.
- Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Even their heaviest songs feature no swearing. Averted by Becca live.
- Harsh Vocals: Becca is perfectly capable of doing this, "Move, Shake, Hide" is probably the best example.
- Intercourse with You: "Love You Good" has little room for interpretation.
- Large Ham: Becca, especially in their live shows.
- Mohs Scale of Rock and Metal Hardness: Some songs such as "Captivate You", "Cry", and "Weird and Wonderful" are around 3-4, while others such as "Move, Shake, Hide" are up to 6 verging on a 7. It really depends on the song in question, not the band as a whole. Though the heavier songs are more common.
- Myspeld Rökband: Their name is a misspelling of the pygmy marmosets.
- Neoclassical Punk Zydeco Rockabilly: They're known for being very difficult to pin down, as they borrow from so many elements of rock and metal that it doesn't make a cohesive package. Alternative Rock, Progressive Rock, Mathcore, Post-Hardcore, all come together here.
- Mood Whiplash: Many songs, such as "Move, Shake, Hide" can switch between from clean vocals, to metal screams in a moments notice.
- Scary Musician, Harmless Music: Inverted. They look like normal people, but their music can get pretty heavy.
- Soprano and Gravel: Becca provides a one-woman variation. She can go from clean singing to Harsh Vocals to Metal Screams at any time.
- Spell My Name with a "The": Inverted. They're not called The Marmozets.
- Surprisingly Gentle Song: "Cry" is much lighter than anything else on their debut album.
- Title Track: "Weird and Wonderful" from The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets.
- True Companions: They've had the same lineup since 2007 and have described themselves as family.
- Word Salad Lyrics: More often than not, their songs fall under this.
