After being awarded our No4 album of the year 2017 with 'Come Play The Trees', we couldn't be more excited to have a new Snapped Ankles album ready to pleasure our ears, minds & feet.

They have taken on the guise of the very agents of their community’s demise – the property developers and brokers who heat the market on the promise of ‘Stunning Luxury’. With their adopted warehouse habitat under constant threat, the woodwose have taken this sharp-suited incarnation in order to infiltrate. The resistance starts here. From humble forest beginnings via bohemian East London on debut album Come Play The Trees, Snapped Ankles are moving on. The log synths have been transformed into gaudy “To Let” and “For Sale” signs, which have become the new instrument of choice for the discerning woodwose. The sounds they eke out of the housing bubble are as frenzied and unstable as you’d expect. Dystopian bangers. Illicit thrills. Stunning Luxury moves quickly through life in the capital: microdosing mindfulness in the morning, a poisoned nod to the marketing department, investment portfolios and death by same day delivery. The primal rhythms and forest chants are all present and correct. On the surface it’s hedonistic business as usual – a communal dance for the ages. But there’s a sense of discomfort too. There’s subversion, but it’s not clear who’s subverting who. There’s a message, but it’s often fragmented. Keep dancing. Keep foraging. Perhaps the woodwose are human after all… “Snapped Ankles make loud, saucer-eyed synth music and are forging a career on freaking fold out” On The Radar, Music Week “A turbocharged take on electronic-tinged psychedelia that is a surging, captivating charge from beginning to end” The Independent “Snapped Ankles hammer away with logs as instruments, creating a sonic middle ground between nature and technology” The Guardian
