Snatch the Snail - "Closing In"

With a simple guitar riff quickly giving way to wavering tremolo and fuzz, "Closing In" is a treat of slowly meandering psych rock which effectively introduces the remainder of Snatch the Snail's Incoming Unknown album. When they sing, "Here it comes / closing in / engulfed / it's intense," it's easy to imagine they're alluding to their own brand of droning and distorted rock. Though it's not the strongest track on the album, "Closing In" is a comforting first step into the band's sound, while the second track, "Knock off the Knockoffs," doubles down on the distorted, chugging rhythms and lethargic vocals. It's slacker rock with psych elements; it doesn't take itself too seriously, and it's a lot of fun.

"Closing In" is the first song on Incoming Unknown.
