One of the UK’s fastest rising new acts, The Snuts, have released the video for their charged new single, ‘Elephants’. Thetrack, which went straight in at number 1 on the iTunes chart, is the band’s first taste of new music since the release of their chart-topping debut ‘Mixtape EP’. As part of the UK Live Drive-In Series, The Snuts will also play London on 8th August, venue TBC.
Directed by award winning filmmaker Aella Jordan-Edge (Whenyoung, The Sherlocks, Grace Davies) and filmed at Maryland Studios in Stratford, the video transports the viewer back to the 1960s with a retro TV show vibe. Speaking of the track Jack said, “’Elephants’ is another twist on our ever growing diverse catalogue. The song in whole features a change in lyrical style leaning more towards referencing.” He continues, “The main theme of this track is about believing in your own ability in times of struggle and diversity.”
Recorded at The Firepit in London with Tony Hoffer (Beck, Goldfrapp, M83), ‘Elephants’ sees The Snuts hit a new gear. The raw, rousing track sees the band continue their cross pollination of genres, with front man Jack Cochrane’s candid vocals becoming a staple of the band’s sound.
