The St Pierre Snake Invasion is back finally with a follow up to their highly regarded debut album a mere four years later. The guys have had a torrid time in seeing this album across the finish line but eventually, they’re here and Caprice Enchante´ arrives.
This is a venomous recording, gnarly, gritty stuff born of frustration, angst and disenchantment and spilt out across thirteen hefty tracks. Blood, guts and glory can be seen here sprawled out across the floor where this album is concerned, as raw an album as you’ll find all year The St Pierre Snake Invasion do things on their own terms and conformity is definitely not the name of the game. With a unique identity, you try to make comparisons but to what end, why try pigeon hole a band so full of verve and confine them to any one label, sometimes you just have to let a band just be.
Envelope yourself in Caprice Enchante´ and forget the constraints of what normal is supposed to be, embrace the chaos and let yourself go, it will be invigorating. The crazy beautiful sonic journey that you will be carried on will melt your melon for sure, will challenge you, will test your boundaries, will make you feel alive, but just remember, you paid for that privilege.
Was it worth waiting four years for? Ab-so-fucking-lutely! You don’t come across something as ethereal and individual as The St Pierre Snake Invasion every day of the week so grab it with both hands and don’t let go, just enjoy the ride.
Caprice Enchante´ is out June 21st
