New single from SNST

New single from SNST

The band SNST, featuring Chris Broach (Braid/The Firebird Band) and Sonja Broach -- pronounced "Sunset," by the way -- recently shared a new single online (and embedded below) called "It's Hard To Be Loved (By You)."

Released late last month, the new song is a preview of what's to come on their upcoming second LP, which will also be titled It's Hard To Be Loved By You, due next spring.

The new song, and new record overall, shifts direction from the band's previous release, with Sonja taking more lead vocals.

"I wasn't happy at all with what I was doing vocally, and felt too close to the music and the production, and adding my wife to the mix, as the main singer, for most of the record, just seemed to fit much better with the music," Chris says. "It allowed me to focus on the music and the production, and as soon as I let go of the vocals, everything just made sense.  I still sing here and there on the record, and I probably will continue to here and there in the future, but this just made sense for right now." 

SNST released Turn Out the Lights in 2017.
