Single review

Snapped Ankles

London act Snapped Ankles have been doing this (whatever this is) for a while, but just grow more bonkers with each release. Preceding an album ‘Forest Of Your Problems’, to be released in July, the visuals for this single include some bizarre masks and god knows what else…

The track is a twisted slice of mutant guitar pop, with added keyboards and scratching, starting with some odd sound effects and spoken words – and a hellish high-tempo backbeat.

The ghost of The Fall hangs heavily over this track, but in a good way, with also maybe some Fat White Family, in the Cramps-esque high speed tilt of the music.

It is catchy as Covid, and the drawling vocals are witty and merge into the music with a deft touch… What’s it about? Business?
