It was my twin-brother who first introduced me to electro/RnB duo, Snakehips, when he played me their song, “Gone.”The song features Odd Future DJ, Syd tha Kyd who has gone on to front her own amazing band, The Internet. (Me and my brother are huge fans of The Internet).
After doing some exploring of my own I came across another song by Snakehips (and singer, Kaleem Taylor) called “Forever(Pt.II)”. The song is really catchy and the music video is one-to-watch for the two exceptional dancers who are voguing in it. They perform their routine in perfect synchronisation. The artist, FKA Twigs is known to incorporate this type of dance into her live performances, where she writhes and contorts her body on stage (she is very good). “Now hold that pose for me.”
Recently, Snakehips have just dropped a new track called “All My Friends” which I think will be a game-changer for them. It is the first song by them which has been doing the rounds on the radio and it also features Tinashe and Chance the Rapper who are artists creating a buzz in their own right!!! The chorus is fun to sing-along to or rather chant to if with a large crowd of people. And it seems as though, the lyrics are from the perspective of someone who has grown tired of partying and getting drunk. Instead he or she would rather stay in, perhaps get into bed and watch some movies whilst eating a take-away (count me in!!!)
