National Snack: Apply Machine [EP]

Fire Drills Review:
The National Snack are a three piece from the UK that play a very funky rock that shows off that they were influenced by the likes of the B-52s and Frank Zappa but also have a grinding rock side to them like The Subways and even the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The group shifts lead vocals from track to track between Gemma Storr and Joe Carlo that works to keep things interesting and offers up a lot of different looks in just 15 minutes. The band is working on a full length and if Apply Machine is a tell it should be a rockin' fun time with their energy and sass!

Key Track: "Rock N Roll"

Band With Similar Fire: The Subways
