Hailing from Melbourne's south east, Snark are a band combining angst-ridden punk rock and shiny pop hooks to create an immediately recognisable sound. Their vibe is clearly drawing inspiration from the harsher lo-fi chaos of bands like FIDLAR and Wavves, the distinctly Australian sounds of Violent Soho, Slowly Slowly and classic pop rock like Kisschasy and Blink 182.
I recently caught up with the band to discuss life in quarantine, their latest single 'Wasted', their upcoming debut EP and their upcoming brand new single 'Whatever, Nevermind' which is releasing on the 12th of August.
"We've been writing songs since we were angsty school kids and we probably won't ever stop, we'll be angsty pensioners writing punk songs about whatever it is pensioners do!"
Firstly, I have to ask this at the moment, how have you guys been coping in the lock-down, what kind of things have you been up to since the lock-down came into effect?
Yeah, it's definitely a strange time at the moment. We've really just been trying to be as productive as possible with lock-down to keep ourselves sane - we've been putting together a new music video, started writing some new songs and also found time to indulge in a cheeky bit of day drinking.
