SNAYX are a British punk rock duo consisting of Charlie Herridge (vocals/guitar) and Ollie Horner (bass/backing vocals) from Brighton.
So far in their career, they have supported musical acts such as Nova Twins, Tigercub, and Kid Kapichi on tour. However, they are most known for their progressive guitar riffs and infectious choruses that are sure to get stuck in your head, reminiscent of the Arctic Monkeys and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes!
The duo are well and truly back with their brand-new track ‘Cigarette,’ which got us hooked from the first second! The single is a clear indicator that SNAYX are the ones to watch, as they successfully continue with their gritty yet easy listening sound. The track begins with a powerful guitar riff before leaping straight in with recognisable vocals from Charlie Herridge. The chorus is a personal highlight, though. It gives us a real Arctic Monkeys vibe from the get-go, propelling us back to the early 2000s!
‘Cigarette’ is a belter of a punk rock track, with subtle indie influences throughout. The song speaks lyrically about a romantic interest who is “addictive” and is “like nicotine” but is not necessarily good for you. It is a very relatable track, as well as being insanely catchy – it is sure to be on repeat for months to come! ‘Cigarette’ is a clear sign that SNAYX are well on their way to superstardom, and we can’t wait to hear more from them in the future!
SNAYX’s new single ‘Cigarette’ was officially released on January 7 on all major online streaming services. The duo also promoted the single on their social media platforms leading up to the release.
