The Snuts have returned with a politically charged new single that takes aim at social media – listen to ‘Zuckerpunch’ below.
A statement describes their latest song as “a probe into the detrimental effects of social media on society and its psychological impact.”
You can listen to the new track here:
Speaking about the new track, lead singer Jack Cochrane said: “’Zuckerpunch’s broken beat aesthetic reminisces the sampled-up, 8-track golden age of pre-internet music.”
He continued: “Lyrically, everything is derived from feelings of screen fatigue, social media burn out and an overwhelming sense of anxiety about the fast moving internet world that is becoming closer by the day a part of us.
“It depicts hard hitting messages around the more impactful pitfalls of social media, the internet enmass and the protection of your identity and privacy.”
“I’ve been trying to work out why, that at a time of pure satisfaction I feel the need to trawl social media for that extra dose of validation. Does it matter what I do on stage? Or more, what I do online?
The Snuts are heading out on a short tour this spring, including what will be their biggest headline show to date at London’s O2 Brixton Academy.
