Indie pop rockers, Chay Snowdon, have kicked off our week with a nostalgic, feisty attitude. We are premiering the music video for new track, ‘Zenobia’, which is the fourth to date for the Bristol based band.
This track will stick in your head with its in-your-face, but radio friendly, guitar riffs and chanting choruses. There’s a familirity to the sound, but it still feels somewhat fresh. The music video itself is contrasting and reflective, switching between dark silhouettes and an open walk across the coastline.
The band are Liam Roberts on lead guitar, George Roach on bass, Ed Fox on drums and Chay Snowdon providing vocals and rhythm guitar. The track ‘Zenobia’, was inspired by Zenobia, a 3rd century Syrian Empress and uses all of her trials and tribulations as a metaphor, comparing it to a fictional modern day relationship.
With the nostalgic feel, the song, and indeed the band, cement themselves into a genre which doesn’t appear to show any signs of dwindling. Chay Snowdon offers us a connection to the rhythm of the song, as well as the lyrical narrative. It’s an easy add to the playlist, and though the familiarity lingers, it’s hard to tire of the track.
