The Snuts take on social media burnout with their new single ‘Zuckerpunch’

It comes ahead of a run of shows set for this April, including a date at London's O2 Academy Brixton.

The Snuts have dropped a brand new single, ‘Zuckerpunch’.

The second taster of new music since their debut album ‘W.L.’ scored a Number 1 on the UK Official Albums Chart last year, it was premiered as Hottest Record in The World on BBC Radio 1 earlier this evening (Wednesday 23rd February).

“‘Zuckerpunch’s’ broken beat aesthetic reminisces the sampled-up, 8-track golden age of pre-internet music,” lead singer Jack Cochrane explains. “Lyrically, everything is derived from feelings of screen fatigue, social media burn out and an overwhelming sense of anxiety about the fast moving internet world that is becoming closer by the day a part of us. It depicts hard hitting messages around the more impactful pitfalls of social media, the internet enmass and the protection of your identity and privacy.”

“I’ve been trying to work out why, that at a time of pure satisfaction I feel the need to trawl social media for that extra dose of validation. Does it matter what I do on stage? Or more, what I do online?”

The Snuts are set to hit the road this April, with a short run of dates including a headline show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
