London punks Sniffany & The Nits are definitely a punk band, but they don't sound too much like classic punk. Their latest single, "Chicken Liver," is a just under two and a half minute burst of noise that will barrel straight over you if you're unprepared. It's not an aggressively fast song. If anything, "Chicken Liver" is just faster than mid tempo. But between Sister Sniffany's manic vocals, buzzsaw yet at times beautiful guitars, and crashing cymbals, the song feels much faster and out of control than it actually is. This is that next generation noise punk that is rooted firmly in noise and discordant as hell, but still has some odd pop hooks directing things.
Sister Sniffany says of the new song:
"In 'Chicken Liver' I'm deeply jealous and competitive, desperately trying to present myself as vulnerable, served up on a platter like a chicken dinner as if helplessness is all that counts in order to make myself seem appealing, hiding the wrathful, egg-smashing fury of envy and self loathing."
You can watch the video for "Chicken Liver" below. The Unscratchable Itch is due out July 8 on PRAH Recordings. For more on Sniffany & The Nits, check out the artist on Twitter and Instagram.
