For their second release of 2021, Snap Infraction have taken a slightly more long-winded approach.
Songwriter Steve Karsch explains "`Second Chance` is a slow burn of a tune, it takes a little longer to make its point. You could listen to our last A-side I Try My Best not once, not twice, but thrice in less time than this track, but we think it doesn't feel as long as it is. All the parts that are there are there for a reason, it's not just endless noodling."
Drawing inspiration from such artists as Elliott Smith and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, there's even a bit of psychedelia in the second (or is it third?) bridge.
"I had the initial verse and chorus and wasn't sure what to do with it, then I found a demo of the song that had a bridge that I'd totally forgotten about which sparked the rest of the track."
The B-side "Too Much Fun" is quite literally that: too much fun.
"The idea for that one was the result of a particularly wicked hangover and my friend saying something to the effect of 'I guess you had too much fun last night.' I hung on to that line for ages and we put a pretty rockin' tune behind it with some meaningless lyrics and there you go: a good old-fashioned rock n roll tune."
So crank it up and have a little too much fun of your own...responsibly, of course!
