Snails formed in 2010 when Bristol songwriter Dan Weltman
(aka Hollowbody) recruited friend Mog Fry
/ Ukeytronica) to help soundtrack a budget slasher involving a homicidal nun. No Baftas resulted but this bonding process led to the creation of several more lost soundtracks - songs centred on two voices projecting a vision of widescreen heartache as seen through rain-streaked semi-detached windows. Their sound, awash in melancholy folk and sumptuous pop arrangements, bears the influence of mavericks such as Basil Kirchin
, Clive Palmer
. Snails recently welcomed low frequency operator Holly McIntosh
on electric bass and drum expert Steve Dixon
on the kit.
