Snakes on a Higher Plane

WRITTEN BY
SPIN Staff

The au courant qualities of their name risk making Snakes Say Hisss! invisible amongst contemporaries like Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Panic! At the Disco, but luckily, their electronic indie pop music has real bite. "I Control the Wind" sashays in synth and flirts with a line of falsetto aah-haas. Snakes shed this skin on other tracks, though, trading Franz Ferdinand sheen for softer blips with the Postal Service's punctuation. Snakes have settled with fellow bands Boogie Boarder and the Huxtables in a collective called Famous Class, which includes group of other artists working in DIY mediums like DVDs, comics, shirts, and zines. I'll Be Lovin' You is available through Famous Class' website.
