Stream: That Snaake – Go Bricker [AKA At Swim One Stone]

That Snaake Go Bricker Cover

Dublin post-punk quartet That Snaake have just released their debut EP, Go Bricker (AKA At Swim One Stone).

Channelling wry, socially surreal lyrical content in the vein of Future of the Left’s Falco through apathetically snarled vocals evocative of some of the classic indie rock bands. Papally-named guitarists John & Paul contrast angularity & density in the kind of guitar interplay heard from Wire, Milk Music, Slint and Fugazi.

That Snaake 001

The self-aware foursome launched the EP in Dublin autonomous social centre The Barricade Inn on Friday with a selection of great underground Irish acts. The title of the EP comes from a YouTube video of what the band describe as ‘a modern day Aisling figure of Irish cultural identity who rides around suburban estates declaring a call-to-session for all’.

It’s the kind of music that exists decidedly in a post-Tiger Irish world, in the same way The Fall were a by-product of their socioeconomic climate. The EP was recorded live in JaJa Studios by Fionntán MacCaba, where they capture the ever-growing live fire of the band.
