The Snuts have shared their thumping new single ‘Elephants’ which is the band’s first release since March’s Mixtape EP.
The track was premiered on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show last night and has already sky-rocketed up to top spot on the iTunes singles chart ahead of Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s collaboration after a comical Q&A session held by the band on Twitter, encouraging fans to buy the track for 59p so they could have Lamborghini’s.
Speaking of the track frontman Jack Cochrane 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.”
‘Elephant’ carries on where the band’s last EP left off with the culmination of different genres with the latest single being reminiscent of Beck, who also loves to mix things up on each project.
The Scottish band were due to have played their biggest headline shows to date in April and May which included a sold-out date at Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange which sold out in a matter of minutes.
It has now been pencilled in optimistically for September and may, unfortunately, have to be put on hold even further, but with releases like ‘Elephants’ now in their arsenal, these shows will no doubt end up being worth the exhausting wait.
