The best slice of 925 yet

More about:

Sorry have shared another slice of their forthcoming debut album 925 - and 'Snakes' is perhaps our favourite yet. Following on the heels of 'Right Round The Clock', 'Rock 'n' Roll Star' and 'More', the new one is a reworked song from Sorry's early Home Demos. 

'Snakes' builds in a melancholy guitar riff which bursts into a booming echo chamber of sounds before devolving into a quicktime hi-hat offset by drowsy surrounds. All of it is uderpinned by Asha Lorenz's lazy drawl; the apathetic crooning of an excellent singer leaning heavily into the intoxication of the instrumentals that surround her.

This one swirls with gorgeous production: creepy callbacks, Gothic samples and far-off percussion.

There's an accompanying video complete with a wet-looking yellow Python climbing around a leafy studio flat and its unperterbed owner too. See it; hear the single:

The band can also be seen handling the snake, while the creature in turn watches itself on the vintage television. There's even visual throwbacks to the Youtube Home Demos mixtape that made Sorry so popular with early fans. 

'Snakes' is the fourth single taken from forthcoming album 925, though previously-released 'Starstruck' appears on the LP, as well as a "refix" of live favourite 'Lies'.
