Toronto's Hot Garbage released a bombastic new single that is quickly becoming required listening. "Snooze You Lose" is this dark, heavy indie rock song that we're going to describe as psych-goth. It sounds like a cross between early Sonic Youth, A Place to Bury Strangers, and The Jesus & Mary Chain. It's a song that rocks as hard as it grooves, with plenty of drone and pummeling drums. Plus, there's a deep sense of foreboding throughout the entire track. But, "Snooze You Lose" can just work as a heavy rock track, if that's the kind of thing you're into.
Hot Garbage says of their new single:
"The song is about how time passes when you stand still. Sometimes all you can do is laugh."
