Men Cry Too!

If you haven't discovered the unique sound of four piece indie-pop band Chay Snowdon, then please allow us to introduce you.

They're already comfortable playing to huge audiences, appearing at Y Not, 2,000 Trees, Boardmasters and Dot to Dot, as well as supporting The Sherlocks and getting the attention of some of the biggest names in the business, including Steve Lamacq.

"No, seriously fellas... you have got the keys to get back in, right?"

Frontman Chay Snowdon has a unique voice, once heard, you’ll see what we mean. Influenced by the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Catfish and The Bottlemen and Kings Of Leon, the band have developed a really honest and gritty rock 'n' roll style that is both powerful and delicate at the same time.

"Men Cry Too!" was released on 20th September and is the bands third release of 2019, following on from January releases, the rousing "Mon Cheri" and the laid back "Sha La La", both of which demonstrate both the versatility of the band and the brilliantly grounded and thoughtful songwriting.

The latest single once again demonstrates the magic formula that the band have etched out so well. It came about after Chay overheard a conversation between two friends, in which a male told his friend to ‘man up’. Chay says of the song, “This simple statement set my mind to thinking, ‘what does a throw away comment like that actually mean?.’ Hopefully ‘Men Cry Too’ encourages people, male or female, to sit down and chat every now and then and support each other.

As you might expect, there are some huge guitar riffs, courtesy of lead guitarist Jack Hawkins, along with some pretty stong drumming from Kyran Bignell and George Roach's solid, steady bass, all brought together by Chay's iconic vocals and guitar.

But this song is about more than impressive musicianship or unique voices. This song is about a very important message - it's about actually listening to each other - listening to each others thoughts and emotions and holding out a hand to others. It's about not being afraid to ask for help when help is needed.

Watch out for Chay Snowdon - we have a feeling there's going to be a lot of noise about these guys!
