Snakedoctors are a four-piece rock band from Gdansk Poland. Active from May 2020, the band are known for their gloomy dark rock scapes that delve into simple concepts and reveal the complexity within. For their latest single, Brighter, Snakedoctors collaborate yet again with drummer Nik Hughes to cultivate a beautiful grunge driven landscape. 

The track presents like a rising mountain, with its grinding grunge slowly rolling uphill. Its sliding riffs and sinking vocals are balanced out by scale boosts and elevated bass line corridor. Looping ominous threads of sonic into a hoisting atmosphere, the band achieves the song’s theme without compromising on their style.

A gossamer guitar melody floats above it all, with its subtle luminosity creating dimension and depth. It is perhaps symbolic of the silver linings that drape over each sonic  element in the song. And along with the yearning hope in the low growling vocals, the cold warmth in the riffs, and the uplifting drum rhythm, this sublime light builds up the brightness in a fundamentally despondent soundscape. 

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
