One of the bright lights leading the explosion of new bands coming from Scotland, the Snuts have always defied expectation and this is no exception. Taking the basic guitar/bass/drum/vocal lineup, they have consistently shown the ability to mix tender songs with raw emotion together with straight ahead Libertines-type punk pop and this album shows their entire range extremely well.

Opening two tracks "Top Deck" and "Always" start the album off as they mean to go on - a ... read more

NOT INTERESTING

Just listen to an average 2010s indie rock band for the same type of sound. There are 8000 bands that sound exactly like this. The Snuts need to find an identity that is as unique as their name.

For a new, Scottish band that Parlophone themselves tipped to look out for this year (Which will bank well in the UK Album Chart), their debut album W.L. has finally arrived...And I was disappointed.

Dude, this is borking as fuck. Hate doing this to Scots but it’s like advert music that 15 yo would make. Fuck, this is also so predictable musically. Just using every cliche used by every other arctic monkey copycats

Take all of the boring indie pop tracks of all fifa soundtracks from the last decade, and mix it with a random train album, boom you've got this with a few exceptions like Glasgow, that thing slaps.

while this was bad it was simultaneously boring, i got a discord call half way through listening to this and it was more interesting.

might be missing a kick for indie rock genre, although i can still find it among Always and Elephants; but as a whole, it is absolutely magnificient piece of comfort, like, every song of it. Toned but charming, calm.
Not an album of the year, but might be the one I actually listened the most to.
