Marketing Highlights

Stereogum Premiere of “Bum Song” – “two minutes of rapid-fire guitar sludge and drum battery, topped off with willfully abrasive vocals that hit like a rallying cry in the midst of a warzone — so, basically it’s the sound of political discourse circa now, only much more viscerally satisfying”

Snakehole has returned, and on the Miami/Philadelphia noise rock duo’s new LP, Interludes of Insanity, KC Toimil and Autumn Casey up the clarity, volume, crunch, and sophistication in a major way. Recorded by the prolific and precise Ben Greenberg (Uniform, Mission Hubble) in Hudson, New York’s cavernous Waterfront Studios, Interludes of Insanity showcases the duo’s headway into layering and experimentation. The LP makes no qualms; it’s the main act, and it wedges itself firmly into the tradition of cohesive, almost narrative, albums.

Autumn and KC reiterate that the LP is a continuation of their self-titled 12”, and though there are similarities, Interludes of Insanity feels more realized, demonstrating a band fully in control of its sound and ethos. Fans of the 12” will find more snarling, filth-drenched grime rock, but, as that record hinted at, Snakehole here wields beauty just as easily as darkness. The piano sections that would peek their heads out of the woodwork sporadically on the 12” have become more full, more central. But there’s unease in the beauty, too — a little bit of reality. The album stands as a testament to self-actualization, and it’s as clear as it is engaging. But that’s what happens when your music isn’t confined to permutations on one song, isn’t it?

PAST PRESS -

Noisey - "aggressive and genre-leaping rock music" CLRVYNT - "two ferocious women dead-set on stirring up chaos" Post-Trash - "a crushing and unwieldy sprawl of blistering feedback, dense riffs, and immersive vocal melodies"
