West Lothian charttoppers The Snuts donate budget for latest music video to live music industry
Rising stars, The Snuts played two socially distanced shows alongside The Libertines last month, have revealed their new single, ‘Always’ and a music video for it which was filmed locally at Leith Theatre.
The track comes after a surprise drop of the bluesy summer banger ‘That’s All It Is’ last week, which will feature on this year’s coveted FIFA Soundtrack.
Speaking to Music Week, singer Jack Cochrane emphasised the cry for help in the sector: “Just trying to have those conversations at the moment seems difficult, trying to get anybody to listen. It’s integral, and the people who drive the buses, do lighting and stuff like that have been ignored, simple as that.”
The band, who recently appeared in Strongbow’s latest advert with a stunning cover of ‘Summer In The City’, have been vocal about the urgent support required from the government for the music industry in the current climate.
Jack also wrote a passionate open letter to First Minister Nicola Sturgeon as part of the #LetTheMusicPlay campaign.
Their single ‘Elephants’ went straight in at number one on the iTunes chart and shut down Twitter with their hashtag topping the trending chart.
This followed the band’s debut ‘Mixtape EP’ which reached number one in the Scottish and Vinyl Album charts and number 14 in the UK official charts in March.
