Sniffany & The Nits - "Piggy Bank"

Besides having one of the band names of the year, Sniffany & The Nits also have one of the best press release opening lines I've ever read: "Sniffany & The Nits are a deranged, genuinely troubling punk band from London featuring members of Joanna Gruesome, Ex-Void & The Tubs." If you're intrigued, you're going to love "Piggy Bank." The new song is a lightning fast punk song that starts at full speed to the point that the members seem winded by the end of the two minutes it takes up. Despite how fast and noisy the song is, it's unmistakably catchy. It certainly won't seem that way when it starts, but by the end of the first minute it will almost sound like pop without turning down the intensity at all. That might be because of singer Sister Sniffany. While she'll make you think of the punk greats that came before her, she has a sound all her own. 

You can listen to "Piggy Bank" below. The Unscratchable Itch is due out July 8 on PRAH Recordings. For more on Sniffany & The Nits, check out the band's Twitter and Instagram.
