Inching Into Autumn with Snails

Snailsa band from Bristol, can neatly be filed in the category where you keep your Kevin Ayers, Cate Le Bon, Belle & SebastianGorky’s Zygotic Mynci, the Kinks and Ladybug Transistor albums. You keep those records close to each other I hope. This band’s first album Safe in Silence hit the digital landscape a couple weeks ago and its bucolic psychedelia I have discovered to be a perfect autumnal soundtrack.

The songs have an easy wistful sound that bounce along with flourishes of strings and horns economically interspersed. It’s a classic sounding record packed with classic sounding pop songs that deserves some recognition and some space on your shelves.

Right now this is a digital only release, but I saw yesterday that it will be getting a limited vinyl issue soon on Feral Child  (who just put out a Peter Astor single). In the meantime, you can listen to and buy Safe In Silence from Snails’ bandcamp page.
