If, like me, you thought that the Amazing Snakeheads were one of the best things to emerge out of 2014, then you are in for a treat with today’s song. Written and performed by Laura St Jude and featuring the unmistakable vocals of the Snakeheads Dave Barclay, comes this super dark, super slinky and super sultry track, ‘Your Misery.’
Laura St Jude is a Glasgow based singer-songwriter who has toured extensively with the explosive yet short-lived Amazing Snakeheads, providing guest vocals, guitar and percussion, as well as co-writing tracks. Described as a, ”romantic realist who dredges the depths of melancholy without succumbing to the banalities of self-pity,” Laura also releases her own solo material with Off Label and Oligo Records releasing her debut EP, ‘Fatal’ in 2013.
Laura’s live band includes guitarist and former Snakeheads front man Dale Barclay as well as bassist Roddie McGrath and drummer/backing vocalist Jennifer Hamilton and today’s extra special treat is not only the provision of a stonking great song, but a fantastic live performance of it too! Watch and enjoy above.
“Your Misery” will feature on a 7″ single and digital download due sometime this July…watch this space!
