One of the UK’s fastest rising new acts, The Snuts, have released their charged new single ‘Elephants’. The track is the band’s first taste of new music since the release of their debut ‘Mixtape EP’, which took the charts by storm in March. Premiering on Annie Mac’s Radio One show, the track went straight in at number 1 on the iTunes chart and shut down Twitter with their hashtag topping the trending chart.
Recorded at The Firepit in London with Tony Hoffer (Beck, Goldfrapp, M83), ‘Elephants’ sees The Snuts hit a new gear. The raw, rousing track sees the band continue their cross pollination of genres, with front man Jack Cochrane’s candid vocals becoming a staple of the band’s sound.
Speaking of the track Jack said, “Elephants is another twist on our ever growing diverse catalogue. The song in whole features a change in lyrical style leaning more towards referencing.” He continues, “The main theme of this track is about believing in your own ability in times of struggle and diversity.”
With a sensational rise since the release of live favourite ‘Juan Belmonte’ in 2019 and an avid 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. The band’s debut ‘Mixtape EP’, recorded with Inflo (Karen O / Danger Mouse, Michael Kiwanuka, Little Simz) and Tony Hoffer, reached number 1 in the Scottish and Vinyl Album charts and number 14 in the UK official charts.
The Snuts are: Jack Cochrane (vocals/guitar), Joe McGillveray (guitar), Callum ‘29’ Wilson (bass) and Jordan ‘Joko’ Mackay (drums).
