Share video for ‘Snake Shake’

Debut album Space Fruit Vineyard

Due 15th April via Tip Top Recordings

London space-surf four-piece Japanese Television have shared the video for ‘Snake Shake, the second single taken from their debut album, Space Fruit Vineyard, out 15th April via Tip Top Recordings.

With their full-throttle blend of psych, surf, sci-fi, garage rock and everything in between, the band describe ‘Snake Shake’ as, “the curling tail of light from the flying saucer, the skipping stars in the back of your eyes, the smiling snake gliding through the moon dust, and the wonkiest, fuzziest, most complete mass of space surf ever“.

The track’s even wonkier video was animated by Nelly Michaneud who says, “I initially thought it could be a 3-5 day animation morphing challenge but as I got to know the song I got carried away and deeper into it. I loved playing with a chess-looking snake and its black and white world. It allowed me to work both with the slithering, strolling aspect of the song and its strong energy.

The new video for “Snake Shake” proudly dominates the hypnotic tendencies that the ensemble throws out with such commitment. Japanese Television obliterates the mammoth soundscape they’ve created within their new single. Abrasive tones, raw rhythms, and this infectious appeal. The chaotic drum fills emphasize the crushing sensation that the journey possesses. The immersive energy of Japanese Television is once again captured with such ease in their latest single, the energy hooks the audience and keeps them fixated from start to finish.
