Recorded at The Firepit in London with Tony Hoffer (Beck, Goldfrapp, M83), The Snuts hit a new gear with ‘Always’. Taking a darker route than previous releases, the track sees the West Lothian quartet continue to push their musical boundaries, hone their craftsmanship and illustrate their limitless ambition. Lead singer Jack Cochrane said, “Lyrically, the song depicts the message of falling in love with someone who in turn allows you to love yourself; quite arguably, one of the most difficult things to try and do these days.”
The band, who recently appeared in Strongbow’s latest advert with a stunning cover of ‘Summer In The City’, have been vocal about the urgent support required from the government for the music industry in the current climate. Lead singer Jack Cochrane wrote a passionate open letter to First Minister Nicola Sturgeon as part of the #LetTheMusicPlay campaign.
With a sensational rise since the release of live favourite ‘Juan Belmonte’ in 2019 and an adoring fan base, The Snuts have been garnering a massive following in the UK with support from the likes of BBC 6 Music, Radio 1, Radio X, Absolute Radio, NME, Independent, Clash, Notion, Far Out Magazine and Dork Magazine. Their latest single ‘Elephants’ went straight in at number 1 on the iTunes chart and shut down Twitter with their hashtag topping the trending chart. This followed the band’s debut ‘Mixtape EP’, recorded with Inflo (Karen O / Danger Mouse, Michael Kiwanuka, Little Simz) and Tony Hoffer, reaching number 1 in the Scottish and Vinyl Album charts and number 14 in the UK official charts in March.
