SNST is a newly-formed outfit featuring Chris Broach of BRAID & The Firebird Band and Steve Znavor of The Firebird Band. Produced, recorded, and mixed by Will Yip, SNST’s first LP Turn Out The Lights represents a fresh body of work that seamlessly blends electronic and organic instrumentation into a unique amalgam of music that's as apt to make you dance as it is to make you think. The duo wrote the songs that would become Turn Out The Lights at each other's respective residences in Chicago and Los Angeles. From club-worthy, synth-driven grooves, to stripped-down perfection & angular post-rock feels, Turn Out The Lights is an album that's difficult to categorize because it doesn't have an allegiance to any one genre – and its strengths lie in the liberating nature of that freedom. Turn Out The Lights is as infectious as it is intellectual – and the duo tackle topics ranging from deeply personal to passionately political within the course of the album.
