Arizona Synth-Punk Hip-Hop
Snailmate was formed by Kalen Lander and Ariel Monet in early 2015 in Phoenix, AZ. To date, the band has independently released 3 EPs (on tape and CD) one 7 inch vinyl split, one tape split and one full length album “Love in the Microwave” (digital distribution by OCML records) which together have amassed thousands of physical sales and Digital downloads and garnered praise from press outlets such as Phoenix New Times, Java Magazine, Rogue Valley Messenger, ABQ Free Press and more.
The band’s self-booked touring began spring of 2015 and they haven’t stopped since. Snailmate has played clubs in every region of the country while also performing at SXSW, Evel Knievel days, UFO festival, multiple pride festivals, State fairs, Maximum Ames and Fog Fest. They are currently at work on their fourth EP which will be released in 2018. The duo will continue touring the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe and more until they die.
“I literally never know what to expect with Snailmate. Sometimes they’re funny, sometimes they’re angry, sometimes they’re downright terrifying and I’m not even talking about the lyrics; that’s just musing on the music they squeezed into their fantastic Escargot EP trilogy. I suppose the same goes for their lyrics as well. Either way, they are probably one of the most imposing musical duos of all time, armed with a keen wit and endless creative vision Snailmate seems to be able to charm everyone at some point.” – Phoenix New Times
