One of the UK’s fastest rising new acts, The Snuts, have released a retro TV gameshow video for their charged new single ‘Elephants’. The track, which went straight in at number 1 on the iTunes chart, is the band’s first taste of new music since the release of their chart topping debut ‘Mixtape EP’.
The opening guitar notes are inspired; jazzy, flashy, and vibrant, they pair with dad-dancing visuals to create a beauty of a video that is tacky in the best possible way. It’s a testament to Jack Cochrane’s talented tone that the vocals somehow do not lose their magic: they retain a beautiful tonicity, reminiscent of Turner and similar revered vocalists.
These lead into a boppy, melodic groove, packed full of flamboyant rises and chintzy, technicolor fun.
Directed by award winning filmmaker Aella Jordan-Edge (Whenyoung, The Sherlocks, Grace Davies) and filmed at Maryland Studios in Stratford, the video transports the viewer back to the 1960s with a retro TV show vibe.
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.”
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.
As part of the UK Live Drive-In Series, The Snuts will also play London on 8th August. Check out their other UK dates, and hear their relentless sound live.
