London four-piece Snapped Ankles make dance-infused, post-punk inspired by the efficiency of Devo and the improvisational spirit of Can. They’ve gained notoriety for their live shows over the past few years, often dressed head to toe in outfits made from forest debris and playing homemade synths built from logs – they’re not a band content to play a typical rock show.
The group released their third album, Forest of Your Problems, earlier this year. It’s a record inspired by their love of the forest, experimenting with warped electronica, motorik rhythms, white noise and spoken word, propelling the listener forward at all times to create ten tracks full of addictive and relentless energy.
