Snapped Ankles

The band members of Snapped Ankles never appear on stage without their ghilliesuits – those camouflage suits that look like they’re covered in leaves and bushes. Is it a gimmick? Is it performance art? No idea, but in any case it fits well with the story of the British formation, which since its debut record Come Play The Trees (2017), has been calling attention to the demise of primary forests and the destructive power of capitalism. How they wrapped their somber message in such danceable krautrock is beyond us, but as British music site The Line of the Best writes:

‘Snapped Ankles make music to soundtrack the apocalypse, and you can’t help enjoying the ride.’
