DC based Rock-Noir trio Park Snakes is the sound of rock collapsing backwards from post punk into blues and country. Its hearing rock music break down from Blondie to Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Degeneration rock.
Consisting of Nenet (Vocals) Jason Coile (Guitar) and Van Hillard (Drums) Park Snakes formed in early 2016 and possesses a combination of intensity, alchemy and ecstasy which is captured in it’s raw essence on their debut EP. Time seems to go slower inside of Nenet’s velvety vocal delivery (which have been compared to the Argentine Nico) which simultaneously evoke a sense of calm composure juxtaposed against violent urgency. Lyrics tackling on alienation, ambiguity, desire and the possibilities of love float on top of the propulsive torrent of Hillard’s drums and Coile’s spiky riffs.
The second half of the Ep are remixes done by BLIGHT. Stalwarts Br’er, Bruisey Peets, Tölva, Stronger Sex and Crushnpain.
