YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB unleashes energetic new single “SNAKES”
London-based French-Cameroonian singer, songwriter and producer YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB has gained considerable traction since she released her debut EPI Thought I Knew You, Boy Was I Wrong back in March 2023. Although she’s known for fusing indie, alternative and bedroom pop with sprinkles of folk, her latest offering “SNAKES” is an indie punk track with elements of grunge that will appeal to early 2000’s emo/pop punk lovers.
Lyrically, she sings about being surrounded by the wrong people and attempting to navigate life despite this. Her melodic build a lot of tension before an anthemic chorus with huge riffs and relentless energy.
“I wrote the song in about an hour, hence why it’s quite simplistic lyrically. It pretty much speaks for itself, and it’s something I needed to get off my chest. Sonically, it’s quite different from what I’ve done so far, but it’s pretty much inspired by all the music that I grew up listening to: Sum 41, Blink-182, Fall Out Boy then State Champs, The Story So Far and ROAM.” — YAOUNDÉBOXINGCLUB.
