The Snuts will release new album ‘Millennials’ on February 23rd.
Now in sole control of each facet of their art, the Scottish four-piece are back. New album ‘Millennials’ is out on February 23rd, with singer Jack Cochrane aiming to seal off unfinished business.
“Leading into this new record, the original idea was: are there any songs we’ve forgotten to write?” says Cochrane. “Are there any ideas and feelings we can dip back into from when we weren’t living in this music world? That’s where we, as millennials, came up with the concept. Tapping into the emotions that we maybe hadn’t processed into music. Those big boiling points in your life.”
“The first time you’re falling in love. First time your heart is broken. Those pivotal moments. On the last record there was a bit more nuance. With this one, we wanted to see how it would feel if we went more direct on the songs and to connect as easily as possible. I don’t think we’re living in an age now where people want to spend time taking something apart. We want people to feel it the first time they hear it.”
Set to toast the record’s release with two nights at Glasgow’s famed Barrowlands venue – on February 27th and 28th – The Snuts have also shared a brand new single.
Tapping into disco’s celebratory power, ‘Deep Diving’ feels like a ready-made anthem. “’Deep Diving’ is a raw exploration of our mortality, the ticking clock of our lives and the consequences of being caught in the maze of one’s own mind,” lead singer Jack Cochrane.
Tune in now.
