Taking it fast with The Snails

Post Author: Coen Rees

On Wednesday, March 9, Baltimore’s The Snails came to Brooklyn for a rare performance at Baby’s All Right. The “band,” which originally started as a collective covering old Art Lord and the Self-Portraits (the original band of Future Islands‘ Sam Herring and William Cashion) songs, has also featured members of Nuclear Power Pants, Wing Dam, Small Sur, Teeth Mountain, Lonnie Walker, Lower Dens, Wume, Trouble Knows Me, Peals, and Showbiz, making recording and live shows few and far between. In 2016, The Snails will finally release their first full length album, Songs From The Shoebox, and with it, we hope, more live shows. Just in case they stay recluse in their shells, we sent photographer Coen Rees to capture their Brooklyn set, from costume change to the stage.
