Here at Sound Of Pen, we believe diversification in rock music is immensely important – and since International Women’s Day is coming up this Friday, we thought we’d take the opportunity to celebrate some of our favourite bad-ass female musicians. There’re countless talented women we could choose from, but we’ve narrowed it down to five spread out over the course of the week. So, without further ado…

2. Becca MacIntyre

2017 release Knowing What You Know Now proved that, when it comes to post-hardcore, Marmozets are truly in a league of their own. Why is this, you may be wondering? Well, whilst their terrific energy and raw sound is outstanding, Becca MacIntyre is the true gem within this brilliant group. With a voice that could knock you out of your seat, this girl’s vocals prove that women can most definitely SCREAM. Her stage presence is also one of a kind, able to conjure pits with the flick of her terrifying, powerful hand before seamlessly becoming the embodiment of bashful sunshine. MacIntyre has entirely dominated the hardcore scene and, after hearing that Marmozets are back in the studio, we can’t wait for her to blow our minds all over again.
