Schnapps: Crossdresser / More To Life Than Peach – Single Review

Standard

Hailing from Dornoch, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Castle Douglas, Schnapps have their debut double A-side single out this week, and it’s not bad, particularly for a first release.

Crossdresser kicks off with a jangly guitar line, but soon descends into something far filthier sounding, with scuzzy guitar and snarling vocals. It rattles along at a fair old pace, crossing indie-pop with a more underground garage sound. Packed with attitude and wit Crossdresser is a fun little gem.
Other A-side More To Life Than Peach offers some more of the same, albeit in much less frantic style. The vocals on this one veer to close too older Kings of Leon songs for me to enjoy it, which is a shame. Musically is sounds good, I just can’t get past the singing.

A very decent debut, just wish the singing on the second track didn’t make me think of Kings of Leon.
