Snuff Redux – “The French Press”


Seattle rockers Snuff Redux are prepping to release their debut album, Denim American on June 8th. It’s preceded by the track “The French Press”, which is gaining deserved traction locally (airing on KEXP 90.3 in Seattle) for a fun, hook-y rock sound that reminds of The Hold Steady. The album, per the band, “reads as a love letter to Seattle, a city in the midst of change.” In depicting a world in flux and constant change, Snuff Redux tackle relatable issues alongside an accessible sound, merging elements of ’90s alternative with a more modern indie-rock shine. It’s apt adoration for a city with rich musical history, and one that tends to inspire a large amount of talented acts, like Snuff Redux, in its beauty and uniqueness.

Look out for the track’s music video to release this week. I’ll post it on this page when it does.
