Schnarff Schnarff Short Info

For fans of: Nirvana, Pixies, QOTSA, Taking Back Sunday, Saves The Day, Funeral For A Friend , Biffy Clyro

Alternative rock band Schnarff Schnarff have created a sound that is as varied as it is memorable. On their forthcoming album The evil that we do…, out on 9th September 2016 via Black Dug Records, the band have drawn on influences ranging from metal to pop-punk and grunge to emo, skilfully constructing a sound that is undeniably their own.

It’s easy to see why BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway described the band as “staccato grunge pop” as tracks such as ‘Flip The Cross’ and ‘This Is How We Get Some’ are delivered with the impetus and snarl of bands like Biffy Clyro, Saves The Day and Taking Back Sunday. Myles Bonnar’s (vocals) lyrics and expertly delivered vocals are flanked impressively by Jamie Douglas (drums), Paul ‘Thunder’ Tracey (bass) Richard Douglas (guitar) and Andrew ‘Turtle’ MacLean (guitar) as Schnarff Schnarff really let loose, showcasing their ability to marry hooks and choruses to complex time changes, mighty guitar riffs and metronomic drum fills. However, as becomes apparent, the band’s sound has a deeper complexity to it with the grunge-heavy sounds of Nirvana bringing in a dissonance and grit especially on tracks like ‘Cadavers’, while on ‘Mario 1-2’ they pull on the post-hardcore offerings of the likes of Bluetip.

Originally hailing from Inverness, the band formed while they were all scattered throughout the UK, bonded together by a desire to go against the grain of the current accepted norm in music with the aim of producing music similar to the bands that influenced them growing up. After relocating to Glasgow they haven’t looked back since, continually creating music and playing live shows, before recording their album with renowned Scottish producer, Paul Savage (Mogwai, The Twilight Sad, We Were Promised Jetpacks).

Over the last few years Schnarff Schnarff have gained support from the likes of Radio 1 (Huw Stephens), 6
Music (Steve Lamacq), Radio X, Virgin Radio (Edith Bowman), Absolute Radio (Frank Skinner), BBC Scotland (Vic Galloway), BBC RnG and Amazing Radio’s Jim Gellatly as well playing at T in The Park, Belladrum, Wickerman, and Brew at the Bog festival (among many other venues/ festivals).
