Anthony Snape – Say So
As he prepares to embark on his US college tour, Anthony Snape is releasing a new single – Say So.
Who is Anthony Snape? Well, if you’re asking that then you clearly aren’t a long time reader of my blog. He is the artist behind two of my favourite albums: Disappearing Day and Acoustic Sunday. He also happens to be a rather lovely guy whose career I’ve been following since the days when Myspace ruled the world. Oh, and he’s Australian.
Currently abiding in Nashville, this new single shows a different side to Snape’s vocals. It’s more rock/pop than some of his previous releases with the electric guitar appearing to replace the acoustic guitar notes that I adored on Acoustic Sunday. A change in direction can be good though and Say So has certainly impressed me.
It’s one of those songs that is catchy without being grating. Yes, the chorus is repetitive – someone is clearly saying something – but it makes for enjoyable listening. And as for his use of metaphors? ‘Tear at my heart with a lie, with your fingernails of ice’. Fingernails of ice? I love this.
So whilst his ‘sound’ might be evolving into something new, his lyrics remain as strong as ever. And it’s because of his songwriting that I’ve always admired Snape’s music. He’s definitely worth a look into!
