Track Of The Day: snake eyes – ‘skeletons’

A brooding, guitar driven observation on inappropriate behaviours and how we try to deal with them, snake eyes have shared their latest single ‘skeletons’. Lifted from their upcoming debut EP of the same name, which is set for release on 9th October via Failure By Design, the track is an abrasive recognition of how despite our differing opinions, we’re all really made of the same flesh and bone.

Formed of Jim Heffy (vocals/guitar), Nicole Gill (bass/vocals) and Thomas Coe-Brooker (drums), snake eyes are three friends who write songs together to avoid over-thinking or over-complicating things. The trio recorded their debut EP between Heffy’s bedroom and Coe-Brooker’s attic, giving it that all important authentic DIY sound.

Heffy penned ‘skeletons’ after seeing first hand the “questionable” behaviour of an ex-colleague. “A guy at my old work would make these ‘jokes’. I didn’t wanna make a scene as I was leaving the job so I’d just bite my lip, which looking back I feel was the wrong move.” As Heffy points out in the song’s lyrics, “It’s hard to see what’s clear with a narrow mind”, so the band take down these “jokes” via clear cut vocals and crashing percussion instead.
