Straight Out The Blocks To Make 2020 Their Own. New Track ‘Fatboy Slim’Out Now
April UK & Ireland Tour Announced, Play Biggest UK Headline show at London’s Kentish Town Forum April 30th
With a slew of floor-stomping hits and sold-out shows, 2019 saw The Snuts cement their place as one of the UK’s most exciting new bands. The band continue their rapid rise in 2020 with their dance-pit anthem ‘Fatboy Slim’ and the announcement of their brand-new ‘Mixtape EP’ out 13thMarch on Parlophone Records.
Packed with hooks and a groove that will drive even the most reluctant to the dancefloor, ‘Fatboy Slim’ is set to be the anthem across the nation’s fields this summer. Speaking of the track lead singer Jack Cochrane said, ‘The song is a nod to the nostalgic subculture of live music across the UK in the 90s and similar decades. Toying with the idea of sampled drum loops and an electronic music styled structure the track is intended to pay homage to Fatboy Slims notorious set at Brighton beach almost 15 years ago’.
Recorded in LA with Inflo (Karen O / Danger Mouse, Michael Kiwanuka, Little Simz) and Tony Hoffer (Beck, Goldfrapp, M83) the track is the second to be taken from ‘Mixtape EP’. The release also includes the band’s explosive hymn ‘All Your Friends’, the four-to-the-floor indie banger ‘Coffee & Cigarettes’, ‘Don’t Forget It (Punk)’ and the heart wrenching ‘Broadwalk’, which shows a more vulnerable side to Jack’s writing and bares the depth of the band’s sound.
The band have been garnering a massive following in Scotland and across the UK with support from the likes of BBC 6 Music, Radio 1, Radio X, Absolute Radio, Independent, Clash, Notion and Dork Magazine.
Following their racuas sold-out UK tour last year and a run of dates with friend Lewis Capaldi between recording, The Snuts return to the live circuit in 2020, with a spring UK and Ireland tour, including a massive show at London’s Kentish Town Forum on 30thApril.
