If Coachella is where you were these past two weekends, you should take a look and get to know these new up-and-coming artists.
Snakehips are a British electronic/ R&B music duo consisting of Oliver Lee and James Carter.
The artists released their debut single “Days With You” in August 2014 and their debut EP “Forever, Pt. II” in March 2015.
The duo released the single “All My Friends” in October 2015, featuring vocals from R&B/soul singer Tinashe and American hip hop artist Chance the Rapper.
The duo can currently be found under the list of new artists on iTunes with their album that released on April 15.
“We love the vibe of 90s music- Hi-Tek, Pete Rock, that golden era of R&B, with singers like Aaliyah and SWV.,” Carter stated, on the Facebook page,
“We’re suckers for anything with cool soul samples and old drum beat. But we’re only influenced by living in London. We borrow from the past to make music for the future,” continued Carter.
If electronic music is your kind of vibe, you should definitely get familiar with this duo. They are in tune with what good electronic music is.
The duo is versatile and choosing to collaborate with an artist like Tinashe makes their music even more interesting.
“I had never heard of them, but I’m completely open to new music, that’s why I’m always attending Coachella. I watched them and they were awesome! I always like to share with my friends the new music I find,” said student Jason Howard.
Howard considers himself an electronic music junkie who loves listening to the new, hot hits.
“I’m going to make sure to pass along their music to my friends that missed out,” added Howard.
“I love Snakehips. I discovered them a little while ago while searching new music on the internet. I was upset when I could not make it to Coachella,” said student Meghon Everett.
The band’s music can be described as really chill and easy to vibe with.
Their music has the ability to give the feeling of being right there with them at a concert or festival by way of good vibes and melodies.
Their lyrics are very catchy and they try to relate with everyday situations that help them to express their music more freely.
If you’d like to keep up with the artists, that can be done through Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and Facebook, which also includes their upcoming shows.
You can see them from Los Angeles all the way to the UK, starting now through October.
The duo’s Facebook includes a store where you can purchase shirts, stickers and vinyl records, as well as other musicians and bands that you may enjoy.
Be sure to check them out on their forms of social media and add them to the list of music that you already love and enjoy.
