Central Queensland-hailing punk-rock powerhouse Vipersnatch has unleashed their self-titled debut EP, featuring the standout single, 16. Instrumentally, there’s the bouncing Frenetic energy of The Distillers; vocally, ViperSnatch ensnares with Juliette Lewis and the Licks-Esque vocal hooks. But that’s not to say that reminiscence is all there is to this feisty punk track. 16 shines a light on the pitfalls young women can fall into in our predatory world, along with the incredible freedom we felt that we had before life started feeling like an inescapable late-capitalism trap.
16 is now available to stream on Spotify along with their debut 5-track EP.
