about

Park Snakes is a rock n' roll trio featuring Maria "Nenet" (vocals), Van Hillard (drums) and Chad McCall (bass).

"CIA" is the first song we worked on in 2019 as a trio. It was exciting to try to define a new sound that only involved bass, drums, and vocals. This song speaks about surveillance, compulsion and the atrocities committed by the US government. "Took a Job", on the other hand, is a lighthearted dance that deals with mass production, modern consumption habits and well, having a 'job'. Both songs are an experiment in minimal, repetitive lyrics that are purposely simple and devoid of the literary flair we sought in our previous release "Silk".

Van Hillard - drums
Chad McCall - bass, guitar

It's an obsessive rom-com with a socialist flair
Coming out to get you from a Google run state

An obsessive rom-com with a socialist flair

Track Name: Took a Job
I took a test, was unimpressed
I took a test if any

I took a job, I took a job
I took a job, today

I drank some wine, I drank some wine
I drank some wine again

And I danced all night, I danced all night
And then I thought the thing was

Listen to your body as it pushes through the day
Listen to your lover as he leaves you for a friend

Make sure that, make sure that
Make sure that you go honest and employed

List of the faces, a place with many names
List of the places, born out of your mistake

Make sure that, make sure that
Make sure that you don't end up all alone

I got something to show you,
I got something to show you
I learned a lot, I told a lie

I got something to show you,
I got something to show you
I went out, I did the thing
I took a job, took a job

I went out, I did the thing
I took a job, took a job
took a job
