the demo was ticking all the boxes for me to start off with, but now this new mix totally hits a home run. Loving it!
Loved the demo of this song. Love this new version even more. The shifting vocals just make you melt. That's what Lewis McKirdy reckons and I'd have to agree.
Can't believe I'm the first to review this! You guys did a fantastic job!
Not the biggest fan of your sound but the vocals back n forth on this track cannot be ignored and it really builds into something special and unique.
This song is incredible. The contrasting vocals that blend so perfectly together and the lyrics beyond their years make for a track that you will have stuck in your head for days. Not too mention how young they are. Looking forward to the bright future that Snakadaktal will undoubtedly have
LOVE THIS SONG!!
The song is the good to listen to in the shower, It's really nice, the song is solid and decent.
A very polished outfit. Mature musical arrangement.
Complimentary male and female vocals this track.
I expect big things from them.
Epic song! voices together sound cool.
absolute purity. love it
Impressed! The instrumentation was tasteful and original, vocals fit perfectly, and whoever the girl is in this band is cute as hell :P
you guys amaze me !
So good guys! really loving the chilled vibe!
The vocals in this song are wunderbar! Too kool for skool.
Wow, loved it :)
Can't wait for the EP!
love this track!
Great Sound, Very easy to listen to
What bad could you say about this song? It's a well written, well produced, well mixed, catchy pop song. Everything is in it's right place.
Even laden with reverb, the multi-part harmonies don't seem crowded in this rich arrangement.
Great song from start to finish. These guys are going to go far! Possibly the cutest band name to grace Unearthed as well.
Great blend of vocals, a really fresh sound that just doesn't get boring. Loved every second!
loving this track and chimera aswell look forward to hearing more tracks yeeew
Great sounds, amazing vocals.
Really like it! 5 stars to you guys ;)
Omg...i just got actual goosebumps listening to this song! I hardly ever give 5 stars - in fact this may be the first time i have done so. The female/male vocals are so bloody complimentary it just about melts your face off. Very, very nice
I cannot get enough of this song! Love it :-)
No Surprises here, a well crafted and excellent track.
Probably one of the reasons I started showing serious interest in Triple J unearthed.
They are fantastic
hey ya, nice sounding song. the only bad thing I can say is behind the effects you can hear some pitchyness.
easily best song on triple j, unearthed are lucky to have discovered such great talent in their comp,when i first heard it I thought of angus and julia stone, or the jezabels but it surprised me especially when they weren't big name artists.
great song, lovely combination of voices
A near perfect tune with a killer vocal combo that gets me everytime.Bit of a Foals sound to it
Heard this on the way home from rehersal this afternoon, I walked inside and immediately looked Snakadaktal up. Amazing!
heard this on triplej the other day- took my breath away so beautiful!! rock on guys X
Vocals are amazing
talented young guys & girl. So pumped to hear an album or see a show.
You guys nailed it with this one! Beautiful fresh vibe...this song gives me tingles. Congrats!!
This one sounds allot tighter not as strong of song but overall a better sound, but the vocals now lack in this song, female vocalist pitch sways in and out tune heaps and the guitar strumming throughout is a fair bit out of tune. Once again its just these small but very important elements you guys miss. Take the time to perfect your songs and sound then press the record button. Look forward to your progress as a band.
Such an improvement from the demo! The voice is a truly unique and idiosyncratic sound that is synthesised well with the music. Keep them coming!
Best song on jjj, these guys are going to be massive !!
This song is a whole world within itself. Such an interesting arrangement of sounds, a chorus that drills its way into your head. Phoebe's voice is entrancing.
Also I really like Peter Pan. Top stuff!
Drifting beauty and perfect timing. The female vocals are pretty special and I only wish they taught production like this in my high school.
Such a simple song with so many great ideas within. If anything, you could break it up into too tracks! As long as you keep the vocal double ups, I'm happy.
been following you guys in secret for the last couple of months, so thought i better let you know about it. am loving what i've heard so far and keen for more
This is a killer tune! A bit too clever at times, so if you channeled these ideas into a focused tune, it would be amazing no doubt.
I can hear this on a big movie sound track, cinematic and moody. Really like Phoebe's and Sean's vocals...great in their own right, but awesome together. I'd love to hear these guys recorded with some serious production. Huge potential. (ANDY STRACHAN - DRUMS)
Proof that kids in high school are too latented. The elastic tempo changes strike me the most, it such a spare track but every element is doing its bit to contribute to the whole.
Love this song, very original!
A dark indie tune reminiscent of the Antlers.
There are a lot of ideas explored across the song with a mix of everything from slow ambient vibes to faster poppy moments. The result is a strange spacey journey with lots of twists and turns along the way. The simple and non-dominating vocals fit in with the sounds perfectly.
I just love the lyrics and Phoebe's voice here.
Chimera is a track that makes me feel like I'm dancing with mystical creatures at a dreamy moonlight party and with a sangrita in hand! The track features the rich vocals from Phoebe mixed with the fun guitar work from Sean and Joesph which forms an interesting and exciting arrangement of sounds. The song has such a great idea and when fused together with the talent from Phoebe, Jarrah, Barna, Joseph and Sean forms a terrific concept called 'Chimera'!
Super fun guitars, sexy voice, perfect for a relaxing summer day :)
Such a beautiful song.
lovely like distant magenta plains and empty echoing tunnels of sparkling dripping stalagmites. vox = perfection and beauty. i was thinking about you when watching rage and then i saw this video on it!
This is your better half, but you are still an amazing band, much talent, and very deserving of your win. Congrats and keep it up guys!
Definite winner for triple j unearthed high, I can imagine myself with a beer beach side at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon listening to this song. This song seems effortless yet clever. A great change in tempo that fits the song very well.
Hauntingly beautiful song.
incredible sound. so great to chill out and listen to.
Hmm...this is definitely an interesting song. Very entrancing. Not what you'd expect from a group so young that's for sure. The big tempo change is unexpected but i think it works. You just need to listen to this one a couple of times over and then you'l be hooked, line and sinker!
This sound takes me to another place...amazing!
Good track, If anything around the 3 min mark felt like it slowed for no reason except to hit the drums.
Anyway Keep up the good work.
An awesome track, with such a good vocal based chorus- had to be remixed!
Song has great potential vocals really a stand out too. I just can't get past how sloppy you guys are as a group, you would expect this from a new band performing live but as a recording there is not excuse for the out time sections and the massive tempo sway, it gets cringe worthy at times. Keep writing though guys you have a gift for catchy ambient cool sounding tunes just need some practice performing them.
Awesome TRACK!!!! Cant wait to hear more. Great up and coming artists!!
This is a great song, but could be more original. Nice vocals.
really cool song, cant wait to hear some more
when I first heard this song on Triple J when the Unearthed High winner was announced I will admit I was not the biggest fan. I didn't know what to think of the tempo changes or the vocals. However as the day went on I found myself humming the tune and singing along under my breath. Since then I have been pretty much addicted to this song.
I love the changing tempos in the song now and her voice just mesmerises me when I listen to it.
You guys have an amazing talent, congratualtons on the much deserved win!!!
A fiery, tribal pop odyssey that shifts and bends and folds. It sounds like so many different bands, yet at the same time like nothing you've ever heard before. It's serene and blissful, yet intense and bittersweet at the same time. In other words, it's phenomenal. Definitely not what you'd expect from a group so young. Wow.
Awesome track. Well done you lot!
Love the sound!!! Well deserved win, so much talent. Just makes me want to kick back under the stars and feels like summer sounds! Absolutely dig it!
Love this song
such a mellow awesome chilled out song, very easy to listen too!
Chimera is a realy cool song love hearing it humming tune at work all day
this song ignites your imagination, takes u on a walk along a simple but beautiful array of melodies that catches your ear with clever lyrics ,get ready for the snack attack
Really impressive stuff from these guys. The lyrics are intriguing and accompanied with that Foals-esque riff, its an unbeatable combo that bodes well for the future! A good career move changing from Monkey Salad to Snakadaktal too. Far catchier.
Such a beautiful song with amazing vocals!
Hmmmm - all i could hear were Sinead O'Connor and Bjork! I don't like to to say those words but everyone seems to do the comparison game - it is hard to come up with a completely new sound these days and the sooner people realise this the better for allupcoming young bands! Saying that, it was a sweet, melodic song that would be nice background or chilling music but i would not buy the single. Well done though for winning! Congratulations and good luck for your future :o)
really good harmony, had a lot of depth and colour which is always good. just the drummer rushes and the beat isnt always the same, not sure if you intended that
wow, amazing stuff. love it!
Great song, but in terms of originality i cant help but feel i am just hearing Foals with a female singer.
Can't wait till the next party to dance to this tune.
I love that the tune represents itself in a few ways just as a Chimera does. This song has caught me on so many levels just as a deep movie with multiple layars can. I am definetely excited to see how this comes out with a big budget recording. You guys are T-A-L-E-N-T-E-D.
So much flavor... amazing song!
this song is fabulous !
Amazing, beautiful and well crafted. A working guitar and bass combination is very effective, and this song demonstrates this. Very easy to listen to.
These guys are so cool with a warm glow. Something from the past with the slightly reverbed George Benson guitar and the tasteful groove, off-set with the modern corners of liquid vocals with such an honest yet distant delivery. This singer and certainly the band as a whole has an exciting future. Can't wait for the album.
The way this song ties together the different ideas keeps me interested for the whole time and it's just a great journey.
Love this song, the music, the vocals...great work Snakadaktal!!!
Can hear it in a big venue - The guitar sounds are great too!
Amazing!, huge talent, real subtle sound. The length of the song just means I can keep listening to your music for even longer.
this is a mad song. it definitley sounds like metronomy and foals. it's an awesome song.
the double vocals is cool as too.
Wow your singer has such a beautiful and unique voice I love it! :)
love this song heard it on the radio today and looked you up. very cool. keep at it kids.
This song is absolutely beautiful. It's so simple and delicate yet has a strong influence on the listener. I am already hooked from the first listen. The vocal approach is so unique and the lyrics are nothing short from amazing. To see you guys go to a Steiner school makes it even better, I attend one to in NSW and i can let you know a Steiner kid will not let you down with their creative attitudes and their determination to do anything the best they can. Keep up the good work :)
Just been reading about you guys. Amazing that you recorded this in a basement with your own gear. This song is a real journey with some beautiful sounds and changes of direction. Takes a listen or two to get into it but I'm hooked now. Well done!! I hope you win.
Yeah I can see myself swaying to this at a festival, keep the good beats coming!
Loved it! I found you guys on facebook one day and heard this song. But I couldn't find anywhere to download it/your work. Super good stuff though!
You guys rule more than a ruler!
Great use of timing guys and really air vocals and the reverb guitar really turns me on! HOWEVER, I'm sorry but the band name.... Needs work maybe?
You guys create magic in your music! i hope you win! keep playing the awesome, groovy music! xx
Excellent song. Beautiful, haunting vocals. Very calming, and i like how it changes up with the Peter Pan bit. Definitely would recommend hearing it played live, so good!
the chorus is dancy and your singers voice is amazing. smooth guitar tones + atmospheric synths is rad. goodluck with unearthed.
Awthome song guys! can't wait to hear some more.
RAD TUNE- Love the style
Absolutely beautiful, I cannot get enough. And I am a very critical person!! Keep being beautiful guys. Xoxo
Such a creative, quirky beautiful piece! I want to hear more of your tunes- you guys are inspirational!!
This track has such a delicate vibe. Such great work! :)
Such a cool feel to this track. Definitely wasn't writing stuff like this when I was in highschool. Not too sure if the tempo changes work for me though.
Beautiful song with some nice changes of tempo. Great stuff.
wowsers... the talent in unearthed high always astounds me but its always great to hear such a great sense of sound in people so young... cool track. i expect many more
Love the changes and variations on tempo, very creative!
Phenomenal. these guys will be superstars
Very impressive recording. This track has style & substance as well as complexity and depth which is all too missing in most music these days.
I heard you play last night, had the best fun ever! This track takes you on a lovely magical journey. Love your work. Keep it up. Xx
repeat repeat repeat.
the video is awesome.
the singer is a babe.
amazing.. cant wait for the EP
u guys r really cool
After hearing 'Air' i eagerly awaited another track from these guys. 'Chimera' was so worth the wait! The vocals are stunning once again, and i love the guitar. Great Job Snakadaktal!
The music and vocals are simply amazing. This song deserves to be legendary!
this an amazing song that has been my favorite at all your gigs!! It has a truly beautiful vocal part all backed by a fantastic instrumental part! This is an totally amazing recording of this song and will continue to be one of my favorite songs!!
Keep it up!
Great song guys!
great track guys, keep up the awesome work :)
having heard this song live this recording confused me a little but upon hearing it a few times i think the changes are for the best.
i like snakadaktal, they are good, i like chimera, it is good
I have heard this song once, and it is already my favorite song!
The incredibly beautiful voice perfectly compliments the range of dreamy synth flavors, rhythmic drums and free flowing melodies of bass and guitar dancing into our enjoying ears.
From hearing this song, I can only predict greater things coming from this band and festivals across Australia soon being graced with their presence.
Love this song, the loping beautiful quality of the melody, that great vocal and the mood of it all. Beautiful.
Grows on you like moss.
i like to listen to this song
SO GOOD! WOW! Send these guys to Splendour!
This particular piece of music has refreshing rhythmn and syncopation. Backup vocals sound amazing at the end. Signed Strawberry Big M.
This song is so lovely, i love it. Love. (Love.) :)
A really melodious and beautiful track that takes you back to wherever you want to go. Snakadaktal's debut EP is sure to be a summer favourite for anyone brave enough to lighten up.
Pure bliss. Perfect Chorus and beautiful verses!!!
