Splicing a healthy dose of grunge with a tinge of brit pop and some pure punk sensibilities, snake eyes are cultivating a new sound in “grit pop” (think hints of Nirvana, blur, Reuben, a dusting of Wolf Alice & a splash of Weezer). The south coast trio’s new mixtape is a fun ride, taking you on a journey between love and hate. ‘the lovehate mixtape’ is out today, digitally and on cassette tape via Killing Moon Records.

Latest single ‘scuttlebug’ has a new and typically creative music video to accompany its vibrant riffing goodness. It’s “a song about lonerism and feeling cut off from your mates when they don’t make the time,” says vocalist and guitarist Jim Heffy of the track. “i’m not good at being on my own but i think it’s super important to be able to be your own company and entertain yourself.”

‘the lovehate mixtape’ follows snake eyes’ debut EP ‘skeletons’ which was released last year as the pandemic took hold. Says Heffy: “for our second full release, we knew we wanted to switch things up a bit. i had so many songs written and the thought of doing another ep didn’t make any of us particularly excited. i think tom floated the idea of doing a mixtape “with skits and that” and that seemed a lot more fun. i realised that some songs seemed sorta like love songs and others not so much. there’s more good vibes within some of the tracks (than on the skeletons ep) but more anger in others. there’s definite themes of self love and self destruction too, so “the lovehate mixtape” was born.” 

snake eyes self-produced their first EP but this time around have collaborated with friend and producer James Simpson (Indoor Pets). Dan Coutant (Drug Church, War on Women, Gnarwolves) delivered on the mastering mystery magic.

The live-music-prohibiting events of 2020 meant that snake eyes launched with merely one gig under their collective belt, but they’re making up for it bigtime by ripping rock shows up and down the UK and setting stages alight with their fire rifffage. They’re currently touring with Waco and will be hitting the road across Europe and the UK with Weakened Friends in April/May 2022.
