AMYL AND THE SNIFFERS

(2021/ROUGH TRADE)

GARAGE-PUNK-ROCK. Already renowned for a ball-tearing live show, THE SNIFFERS made their international debut as one of the hottest tipped acts at "the great escape" in 2018. Written over a long year of lockdown, the album was influenced by and expanded on a heavier pool of references - old-school rock 'n' roll (AC/DC, ROSE TATTOO, WENDY O WILLIAMS), modern hardcore (WARTHOG) and the steady homeland heroes (COSMIC PSYCHOS). "comfort to me" demonstrates the same irrepressible smarts, integrity and fearless candour as their debut but as you'd expect of any young band five years on, their sound has evolved, in AMY's words it's raw self expression, defiant energy and unapologetic vulnerability.
