Snõõper - "Powerball"

Snõõper have been wowing us with their disjointed, high energy DIY punk, and their latest single continues that. "Powerball" clocks in at just over a minute, but it somehow feels like a full three and a half minute pop song. This is also the most melodic that Snõõper have sounded so far, but of course, that is relative. That is what keeps this Nashville band so interesting: They play loud and fast punk bordering on noise rock, but the songs end up still being poppy. "Powerball" is a fun song that is somehow the perfect length for what it is.

Singer Blair Tramel says of the band's new song:

‘Powerball’ was written after a scratch-off winning streak. It’s a funny thing to feel like you are going to win something so arbitrary - to feel like you are going to be the one in a billion winner. I decided to buy some scratch-offs and, to my surprise, I won $50 on a $2 scratch off. I kept buying scratch-offs from different gas stations around town and kept winning. It was a comical sort of high I hadn’t felt before and even when I started losing money I wanted to keep going.

You can watch the video for "Powerball" below. Super Snõõper is due out July 14 on Third Man Records, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Snõõper, check them out on Instagram.
