One of the best things about living where we do is the seemingly endless stream of top- quality music makers that call Newcastle home.
And while it might be early days for Novocastrian three-piece Snowfish, but they’ve definitely hit it out of the park with their debut single Ghost, which was released on Monday.
The band consists of brothers Jordan, Soloman and Kalan Rodrigues who joined forces last year drawing on such influences such as Muse, My Chemical Romance and Radiohead.
And while those influences, particularly Muse, can be felt on Ghost, there is an energy underpinning proceedings that recalls post-punk revivalists Bloc Party and The Killers.
In short, it’s a punchy-as-heck unashamed toe tapper.
There’s also a deftness of skill evident here that belies the trio’s years and a crystal clear mix, courtesy of Jack Nigro and Grove Studios showcases their individual talents to a tee.
Lyrically, Ghost couldn’t be more 2020 as frontman Jordan explained: ” [It’s] about feeling overwhelmed by the unrelenting masses of information online.
“The song is narrated by a character who has become so disenchanted with the online world that they wish to escape from its grasp on their life.”
With the band starting to dip their toe back into gig waters with the easing of restrictions, we can’t wait until those restrictions are a thing of the past and Snowfish can bust out this epic tune to a packed room.
The way it was meant to be heard!
