If Willy Wonka taught us anything, it was there is such a thing as Snozzberries. That existence will be reinforced as high-energy powerhouse funk fusion jammers The Snozzberries make waves through the region with a new release. Jan. 22, the Asheville-based band will release a two-track single called “No Evil”.
The title track, “No Evil,” finds The Snozzberries channeling their inner psychedelic pop a la The Flaming Lips. The whispery sing-song verses swirl from Paul Simon-esque dance grooves into a Red Hot Chili Peppers arena-rock chorus, culminating in a soaring keyboard solo atop an infectious jangle-pop rhythm. At the polar opposite end of the musical spectrum emerges the B-side track, “Snitchin’ Randy,” a roaring progressive face-melter in the vein of Umphrey’s McGee and Frank Zappa.
