Snakedoctors – ‘Heart Too Small’ ft. Victory Vizhanska
“Heart Too Small” is the 6th single promoting last Snakedoctors double album “Four and a Half”. The single production involved – Joe Gibb, well known for his work with such bands like Depeche Mode, The Cure, The Kinks, Jane’s Addiction, Stone Roses and The Mission (mixing) and Slawomir Papis, producer and label owner who is also a musician and guitar player. Just like one of previous singles (“Wuss”) this single is a different version of an album song. The single features talented artist – vocalist, actress, model and cosplayer from Kyiv, Ukraine – Victory Vizhanska. She’s known for her roles played at “Comme il faut” Musical Theatre. The album features also another song with her – “Wonder Girl”. It’s another song about complicated love paths. This time it’s a story about the blood pump of certain gentleman which seems to be too small for someone’s big love. As usual, Snakedoctors did a good job on the video for that single.
On Snakedoctors: Snakedoctors are four friends who started the band in Gdansk, Poland in May of 2020. Since then they released twenty one singles (including a Christmas special and a song in Czech under name Jiri Blaha & Framuga Boys) and four albums: „Obligation”, „Joy Free Bowl”, „Mellow Joy” and “Four and a half”. Their biggest hit single so far – „Close That Door” has been a number one for over 30 weeks in Poland at Radio Olsztyn Top 40 and also at Radio Ostrowiec Top 20. That success was followed by “Too Many” at no. 1 at Radio Olszyn Top 40 and and “Too Many” also at no. 1 and “Crime Story” at no. 2 at Radio Ostrowiec Top 20. Another one – „Got Him Another Girl” reached number one at radio airplay chart for Central America. All singles charted at Poland iTunes Rock Top 100 (many of them reached number one), one of the indie radio charts in the UK (including four number ones – „A Song”, „Tinder Girl”, “Crime Story” and “Wuss”) and other radio charts in the US, Columbia, Ecuador and Peru. Snakedoctors songs get the airplay in many countries worldwide and on 5 continents. The same applies to reviews that their albums and singles receive.
Their fourth double album „Four and a half” was out in May. The album is officially supported by two radio stations in Poland – Radio Olsztyn and Radio Tczew. The songs on both cds are very diverse. On the first one there are songs influenced heavily by new wave, dark wave, post-punk and shoegaze. And the second one is definitely on the grunge side. As before the band managed to get to co-operate with many well known producers. That includes not only the regulars from Abbey Road Studios (Chris Bolster) and Metropolis Studios (Andy “Hippy” Baldwin”) but also – Joe Gibb who is well known for his work with Depeche Mode, The Cure, The Kinks, Jane’s Addiction, Stone Roses and The Mission and Kevin Paul who worked with Depeche Mode and the Kinks and also with Yazoo, Erasure and David Bowie. Another producer is Matt Gerhard working closely among many with the band Spoon. Also the vocalist and guitarist’s friend – Corey Alley (Hobbit Hole Records) work appeared on the album. We will also have a few female vocalists featured in songs, including Christine Corless and talented Ukrainian vocalist Victory Vizhanska. There are also three remixes of album songs – two of them were made in Vancouver, Canada and another one was done by Wojciech the band member, the one who used to play in bands in the US during his college years. The singles are promoted by videos made among many in Ukraine and Germany.
As they say – they play music because it’s fun. It’s an indie band releasing their music on indie label Case Studio. Band’s albums are distributed by MyMusic.
