Bio

Sydney’s Snape has announced its debut LP on DIY label One Brick Today, a relationship formed through both the label’s and the band’s passion for championing women and queers in music.
From its humble beginnings in a bedroom, Snape evolved from a solo-project in late 2015 after blossoming into a full lineup.
Circling around the DIY scene in Sydney for the past couple of years, Snape has enjoyed a steady rise in following from the Sydney and interstate DIY communities after brief jaunts to Melbourne, Canberra and Newcastle. During this time, ‘Always’ was formed, a collection of ten songs soaked in 80s shoe-gaze nostalgia with punk and metals roots poking through. Recorded in June with Joe Andersons at Woodriver Studios, ‘Always’ is an introspective collection of ten songs that all reveal a different part of a narrative that ultimately ends in tragedy.
Though the band’s name is derived from an all too familiar story, that is where the explicitness ends, with lyrics that aim to tell a story through an exploration of emotion and sonic exploration, rather than specific references.
he album was written, recorded and mixed on the land of the Cadigal-Wangal people of the Eora nation and the Awabakal people respectively.

I played this last night on TOPS and WOW. What an experience. It starts off really gloomy and dark, but it kicks. You've got the touch of female vocals that carry forward a little later down the track and the guitars just become so ferocious. It's intricate and sound heavy - I love everything about it.

I guess you're right, I can hear The Cure in this with those icy keyboards but I think it totally stands on its own thanks in no small part to that furious build and release.
