The Snuts, have revealed their infectiously haunting new single, ‘Always’, following two socially distanced shows with The Libertines last month.
The track comes after a surprise drop of the bluesy summer banger ‘That’s All It Is’ from one of Scotland’s finest exports last week, which will feature on this year’s coveted FIFA Soundtrack.
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.
Listen to ‘Always’ by The Snuts on the Official Fantasy Premier League playlist on Spotify.
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.”
For the video, shot at Leith Theatre in Edinburgh, the band requested the budget be
used to give back support to the live music industry and their crew, who have been
left with little work or aid since March.
Speaking to Music Week, Jack emphasised the cry for help in the sector: “Just trying to have those conversations at the moment seems difficult, trying to get anybody to listen. It’s integral, and the people who drive the buses, do lighting and stuff like that have been ignored, simple as that.”
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, with Jack writing a passionate open letter to First Minister Nicola Sturgeon as part of the #LetTheMusicPlay campaign.
