Nashville's Snõõper are a DIY punk band that makes this impossible to resist hyper version of pop punk around. Their new single, "Pod," comes in at under two minutes. It's a fast and furious punk song that is filled with just as much sugary pop as it has an edge. It's chugging and hyper guitars mixed with drums that almost seem to fast. It's punk, but it's fun punk while still having some grit to it.
Vocalist Blair Tramel says of the new song:
“‘Pod’ was written over the pandemic, when people only felt comfortable being around other members of their ‘pod.’ It’s wild to think about that as a concept in hindsight. When we formed our pods, however, our anxieties began to multiply and everything felt so extreme. Our pods confirmed and echoed our worst fears. Everything felt dark and all anyone could do was blame someone else for why we all felt so bad.”
You can watch the video for "Pod" below. Super Snõõper is due out July 14 on Third Man Records, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on Snõõper, check out the band on Instagram. Upcoming tour dates are below the video.
