The new five-track EP from Glasgow based SNACK VILLAIN is a curious and enticing composite of urban grooves, drum ‘n’ bass (‘God’s Basement‘) and downbeat funk, (‘Vision Vortex”) swaying ‘indie,’ (‘Friendship (Oh Ya!) and bigbeat (‘Death Disco (I Wanna Go.)
It’s the first track,, ‘Tick,Tick, Tick‘ that drew me in though. It has a bit of a retro Underworld feel to it with dark baselines supporting the drum ‘n’bass beats and spoken vocals. More though, shades of nu jazz poke through with the more laid back saxophone contrasting the busy bottom line.
