Formed tangentially from two of Ireland's most popular alternative rock bands Adebisi Shank & BATS. Vin McCreith and Rupert Morris have been experimenting and developing Speed Of Snakes for several years. A rich blend of Vin's synth-electronic production mastery and Rupert's vocal and lyrical stylings has created a unique sound that trespasses on the realms of dance, synthwave, pop and rock all wrapped up in an epic science fiction concept.
"Backbone of Night" is the first single from their debut album 'SPEED OF SNAKES'.
Directed by Stevie Russell, the video depict a futuristic Neo-Dublin in all it's shady glory. Sleek but grimy, the film shows a slice of life of one of Dublin's proto-robotic street crawlers. A study in sentience and consciousness amid a hail of badass synthery!
