BONVIVANT / SNACKS?: Split: 7”EP

Both bands have clearly spent some time drinking from the well of Hot Water Music / Leatherface if this release is anything to go by. On the evidence provided, Snacks? has made better use of what was imbibed, managing to steer clear from being an out-and-out copy and writing two very good songs which don’t overly rely on those influences. My problems with Bonvivant are that the songs lack any memorable moments and that I really can’t get past the vocals, which take gruffness into the realms of unintelligible. Therefore I definitely want more Snacks?.
