The fresh new track from Tijuana Cartel features a catchy guitar hook that gets slammed by a down-tempo and intensely fat beat. Drawing from their original and developing sound of the last few years, Tijuana has graduated into new beat production territory.

The highlight of the new track, Snappy Tom, comes in the form of some heavy and quite glitchy noises that drop halfway through. It’s a combination that is sure to send a dance floor into a bass-heavy frenzy. Snappy Tom marks the boys’ first release since completing an extended world tour and spending a few months relaxing in Bali, where they spent days writing new tunes for their highly anticipated forthcoming album.

Paul George, the band’s vocalist and guitarist, says that this is one track that really gets people pumping when they play it live. ‘We wanted our next release to be aimed at the fans that have been making our shows so much fun over the last few years’.

The boys are running high as an underground following continues to grow and as this new track proves; Tijuana Cartel is hell-bent on keeping true to a sound they have been developing over the last ten years.

See them at the SoundLounge tonight or the Great Northern tomorrow.
