Snapped Ankles are a London group making their full-length debut right here and right now on The Leaf Label. The band apparently love to play shows while dressed up as trees, but you can’t really hear the foliage on these recordings. You’ll have to make do with chunky-funky synthesiser lines and fuzzy guitar melodies instead. Come Play The Trees is released by The Leaf Label.

8/10 Staff review, 27 September 2017

Occasionally I look up from my desk to peer at what musics might be playing in the office. If I can bear to tear myself away from my Suzanne Vega album I might even ask what it is. More often than not of late the answer has been 'Snapped Ankles'.

Firstly they are good because they dress as trees and we like trees but secondly they produce the sort of avant garde pop racket that seems to dwell in a midpoint between Liars, Devo, Pere Ubu and Suicide. It's one of those albums that slowly allows you into its world -  at first it is impenetrable as the repeato opener 'Come Play the Trees' sounds like Animal Collective gone native but after that they sound something like the best post punk you never saw. 'I Want My Minutes Back' is like Devo in answer, Johnny Guitar Gosta Berlin is like Tubeway Army performing 'Are Friends Electric' in a Blackpool nightclub before they'd thought up the famous synth riff whilst 'Let's Revel' is The Fall with copious synths buzzing away.

I hear within the grooves everything we sell lots of copies of  - from the great (Beak) to the despairing (Fat White Family) but this is one pulverising show you want to get a ticket to. Their grimy synth rock always managed to hit the right discordant note and has so many moments of memorable scuzz.  Non purchase is simply inexcusable.
