Premiered last night on Daniel P Carter’s BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, ‘Don’t worry’ combines grunge with pop sensibilities to create “grit pop” – getting this Brighton-based trio’s foot squarely in the door.
It was actually the very first song Snake Eyes vocalist and guitarist Jim Heffy wrote for the band “amongst a bunch of naff ones that never made the cut,” he admits. “It was short and to the point, had energy and felt like a good way to start a record or a live set. It’s written about these lovely ladies I used to work with who would always, always fuss over me. This video shoot was actually the first time we got together as a full band to ‘perform’. We didn’t fully know what we were doing so had a few drinks to calm the nerves. Not sure if I should say this but the lights we used actually burnt a little hole in the wall so… soz about that to whoever owns the room!”
