"Snooze" is one of the tracks from the album "Suddenly" which comes out on 15 Feb 2021. This was part of a project where, after not writing much music for a few years, I wanted to see if I could write and record an album in one week. This was influenced by bands like The Lemonheads, who often used simple structures, but still produced some great songs, so I thought I'd give it a go.
As the week went on, none of the songs were sounding like that band, but as I was very much into Belle & Sebastian at the time, their influence was more evident. Snooze became a song that I liked the sound of: quite twee and poppy with lyrics that were just about experiencing a nice time on the beach!
I didn't manage to get it done in a week; it took nine days, which still wasn't bad and it got me back into being a musician after beginning in the 90s with a couple of bands I was in that didn't make it, then not really doing much for about ten years. I re-recorded the songs over the last year or so in my home studio and felt it was time to get it out there.
