snake eyes release new track ‘heavy handed’

On Bandcamp

With proceeds being donated to Shelter UK

The band will play online festival Five4Five on 18 Dec

To celebrate the final bandcamp Friday, December 4th, South coast trio snake eyes have released a brand new track ‘heavy handed’  with all proceeds going to homeless charity Shelter UK.

 “This song’s a bit of an ode to Fontaines d.c and Frightened Rabbit,” says vocalist and guitarist Jim Heffy.

 “Probably doesn’t sound like that in the end but that was the vibe I was going for. It’s a song we all love but for whatever reason, didn’t make it onto the EP. Shelter UK is a great charity for such an important cause, especially now that the temperature is dropping. We just feel that everyone should have somewhere to stay this time of year so any donation, however small, is very welcome.”

At just over 1 minute 29 seconds, this fierce track will obliterate your senses. This fast-paced rhythmic explosion erupts to the most melodic and crucial vocals. It’s an aggressive yet essential track that quickly becomes so addictive you need to hit repeat.

snake eyes are also set to play the second edition of online festival Five4Five as part of a stacked line-up headlined by Yonaka and also including The Dangerous Summer, Vukovi and Weatherstate. The event will be raising money for Music Venue Trust’s #SaveOurVenues crisis fund.

Having only revealed their existence a matter of months ago, snake eyes released a critically-lauded debut EP ‘skeletons’ this October. Blending grunge and brit pop to come forth with their own “grit pop” style, snake eyes also play with punk rock and indie sensibilities, making their music a fun and fervent ride. They’ve been recording between Jim’s bedroom and drummer Thomas Coe-Brooker’s attic, which has certainly resulted in a real and raw sound. Tracks from the EP have enjoyed support from the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, Planet Rock Radio, BBC Music Introducing in the South and Alex Baker at Kerrang! Radio.
