Based out of Pennsylvania, Snoozer (aka SNZR) is brother/brother duo Mike and Tom Kelly, and “Love’s Permission” is their latest. Chock full of that excellent guitar “phuzz,” you’re treated to a solid three-plus minutes of delightfully rambling shoegaze. Understated and chill for the first third of the track, things start to open up and get loud and weird in the middle and end. Fans of bands like Slowdive, Modest Mouse, Bright Eyes, or anything in that fine line between shoegaze and slacker rock will find a lot to enjoy with the brothers Kelly.

You can watch the music video (yes, an actual music vid!) for “Love’s Permission” down below, or listen to the track on Spotify. If you like what you hear, their full album Mid-Earth is out on Friday the 13th in September. With the band forging forward in earnest with a second major release in as many years, you’d best not snooze on them and keep your eyes/ears peeled for more. Tom has played drums with Alex G, so if you’re a fan of his looking for something new this is definitely a good place to look!
