The next big thing in alt-rock has arrived and it goes by the name of SNAYX. The Brighton-based band is formed of Charlie and Ollie, and they’re triumphantly making their mark on the industry, with support already garnered from the likes of Jack Saunders and BBC Radio 6 Music, to name just two.
RECORD WEEKLY’S INTERVIEW WITH SNAYX
Hiya guys, how’s it going?
Great thanks, Imogen. We’re loving the tour life!
Amazing stuff! It was insane to catch your Leeds show at Oporto. What a gig.
So then, introduce us to SNAYX.
We’re an alt-rock duo from the south-east bringing fiery riffs and punky dance anthems to the rest of the UK.
Which bands and artists have been the most influential on your sound?
Definitely the The Prodigy, Death From Above 1979, Slaves, slowthai, Mura Masa, etc. Anything that’s big on riffs and packs a punch really.
If you could play any three global venues, what would they be and why?
Brighton Dome. I’d wager this is at the top of the list for any band based in the city. The most recent band I saw there was Architects, and I can’t imagine how good it felt to sell it out being a local band.
CBGB in New York would of course be another. The history of bands that originated and played there is incredible.
And, you know, 10 Downing Street… we’ve heard the parties are wild.
The last two years have been bonkers, to say the least. How have you personally grappled with the pandemic, and what has its impact been on your music?
It’s definitely been a couple of awful years, especially for live shows, but it’s not been all bad for us. We managed to get some time in the studio over lockdown and have some incredible new tracks to come as a result. We also found that, as lockdown eased, the scene started thriving. So many people just wanted to get out of their homes and get straight into the pits.
I totally agree. There’s been a huge surge in new music since the lockdowns and it’s just beyond exciting to be in the thick of it!
While you’re here, can you cheekily share any other news?
As an early exclusive, we’ll be back on tour in March playing London, Nottingham, Manchester, Huddersfield, Sheffield, Liverpool, Glasgow and Edinburgh! The full announcement is coming soon. We also have some some big release news dropping at the end of March, so definitely watch this space…
