RPM Online: Snakerattlers "All Heads Will Roll"

From the dark heart of Yorkshire, this is Snakerattlers’ second album, and I admit that this is my first encounter with their music. The duo are husband and wife, Dan and Naomi Gott, guitar/vocals and drums/vocals, and, unlike some other duos, they have the tunes to ensure that they are no novelty act.

Songs like “She’s Strange” and the shuffling “I’ll Destroy Your Soul” are more melodic, giving the duo a sense of versatility in tone.
