JUNO Award-winning rock band, The Beaches release their brand new single “Snake Tongue,” premiering on Zane Lowe’s show on Beats 1 on Apple Music.


Produced by the band’s longtime collaborator Jacknife Lee (The Killers, U2, Taylor Swift, Weezer, One Direction) “Snake Tongue” elevates The Beaches’ signature tongue-in-cheek style, throwing a middle finger at unwanted advances. Inspired by their own experiences, from catcalls to unsolicited dick pics, the lyrics ask an obvious but seldom asked question: “Why would you think I’d want to meet you?”

“At the risk of sounding like a marketing campaign that targets women, I wrote ‘Snake Tongue’ about our own experiences, but hope that it empowers women who are constantly on the receiving end of unwanted attention to take back some control in small but meaningful ways.” – Lead singer, Jordan Miller.

The Beaches also release the video for “Snake Tongue” today.  Directed by Ally Pankiw, the rollicking visuals celebrate the destruction of objects presented to women by suitors with an antiquated idea of romance.  Pearl necklaces and floral arrangements are torn apart while other gifts are burned and battered, all surrounding a colourful and energy-packed performance by the Toronto-based band.
