The Snuts Announces New Album “Millennials”, Shares New Song “Deep Diving”
Scottish alt-rock band The Snuts, consisting of Jack Cochrane (vocals/guitar), Joe McGillveray (guitar), Callum Wilson (bass) and Jordan Mackay (drums), has announced that their third studio album “Millennials” will be released on February 23, 2024.
The album is the first release under their new label Happy Artist Records.
From the album, the band unveiled a new song “Deep Diving” on November 27, 2023.
The song is the follow-up to “NPC”, which was released last week.
The track was written by The Snuts, and produced by Jack Cochrane and Scotty Anderson.
The band frontman Jack Cochrane said of the song, “The track is a raw exploration of our mortality, the ticking clock of our lives and the consequences of being caught in the maze of one's own mind.”
The accompanying music video was directed by Cameron Brisbane and Jack Cochrane.
He added about the video, “I wanted to capture on film, the battles we all have in our heads and the eternal nature of them. To do this I drafted in my old man to play an older version of me. The subtleties of ageing and physical and mental exhaustion ended up requiring no real acting at all. It was in this fashion this track was originally constructed. Feels pretty good to put out the real stuff.”
The new album comprises a 10-track, which was written as The Snuts toured the world in support of their last album “Burn The Empire”.
Jack Cochrane said of the album, “Leading into this new record, the original idea was: are there any songs we’ve forgotten to write?. Are there any ideas and feelings we can dip back into from when we weren’t living in this music world? That’s where we, as millennials, came up with the concept. Tapping into the emotions that we maybe hadn’t processed into music. Those big boiling points in your life. The first time you’re falling in love. First time your heart is broken. Those pivotal moments.”
He continued, “On the last record there was a bit more nuance. With this one, we wanted to see how it would feel if we went more direct on the songs and to connect as easily as possible. I don’t think we’re living in an age now where people want to spend time taking something apart. We want people to feel it the first time they hear it.”
