Autumn Casey and KC Toimil are Snakehole. They're from Miami and Philadelphia respectively, they make really fucking cool sludgy punk jams, and their stated influences are "w33d & $A+aN." Same.

In March, the duo released their first full-length, Interludes of Insanity, on Wharf Cat Records (home of like-minded bands Palberta and Urochromes). One of the hardest tracks off the LP is "Good Conversation," which Snakehole is sharing a gritty video for today. They overlaid footage of them pummeling their guitars with creepy, gross, and banal images sourced from social media. With all that yelling, the video becomes a comment on how we let our timelines control us.

"The video is based around live footage taken shot by Nic de Santis at a show in Richmond, VA," the band wrote in a note to The FADER. "Nic is a well-known artist in the Richmond punk/DIY scene, he brings his own lights, and goes for crazy angles and just really gets up close and personal while you perform. I was inspired by the chaos and colors of Nic’s live footage, and aimed to make an abstract compliment to the live footage. I wanted it to look oversaturated and chaotic to make a statement about our current obsession with a constant stream of 'information,' especially as it relates to being constantly connected to social media."
