With psychedelic guitar riffs and humorous lyrics, Snatch the Snail is a fun-loving retro surf band that has been around since 2012 and is based in North Carolina. They are releasing their latest album entitled Glowing Green.
Snatch the Snail will show you one helluva good time with energetic and amped performances. Self-dubbed as “Green Day meets Tera Melos,” the band showcases the vicarious energy of the aforementioned punk rock bands through pumped sessions.
Glowing Green opens up with “Snatchin’ The Snail,” where guitar riffs and pulsating bass lines gives off a fully charged vibe. The vocals are sung with gusto and range. This is a fun-loving song filled with catchy and melodic hooks.
Following is “I’m Telepathic,” where right off the bat the band jumps into this track. The guitars are played in a discordant fashion. The dissonance works into an off-kilter vibe. The vocals are sung in a stop and go staccato manner. The feeling is hesitant and robotic-like. The music reflects this distortion. The rhythms are jaunty and jarring.
Driven guitars and bass lines provide for a hard-hitting sound on “Feminist Hooker Hotline.” The vocals are shouted out with gusto. The vibe is energized and amped. The band’s punk rock influences could be heard in this song.
On the closer “Make My Maker,” the music is dynamic. The guitars are full-on. The vocals are adamant and sung with gusto. This closing song is a definite highlight with a strong sense of urgency underlining this track.
Though these bite-sized surf gems were on the shorter end, leaving me hungry for more, they laid out a solid foundation of what the band is trying to do here. Their enthused performances filled with psychedelic and surf undertones and witty lyrics paints a picture of a band that does not take themselves too seriously. Fans of surf and punk rock will find something in a similar vein to listen to. If you’re looking for some punk rock grit with psychedelic surf riffs, Snatch the Snail’s Glowing Green easily fills in all the categories. Be sure you have a listen today!
