Sniff - Namaste The Fuck Away From Me


  Today, a song that's really grown on me during the last week or so. 

  First things first, what the hell does Namaste mean? Is it just me that didn't have a clue? 

  A quick spot of googling reveals it directly translates as  "the divine in me bows to the divine in you." It's a traditional Hindu greeting and it's the common greeting in yoga, a gesture to send a message of peaceful spirituality to the universe in the hopes of receiving a positive message back.

  So now you know.

  Next up, Sniff (https://www.facebook.com/sniffbanduk) are the indie-punk project of Alex Smith (from Falmouth band Bobby Funk https://bobbyfunk.bandcamp.com/ ). You may recall there was a debut Self Titled ep released last year, a song from which featured on this blog (https://justsomepunksongs.blogspot.com/2021/10/sniff-queer.html).


  Now there's a follow up. It's called Another EP, and it's equally enjoyable. It's a modern take on the genre, it's energetic, catchy and fun. It's a shouty, fresh sounding sound that'll go down well with fans of bands like Slaves. The ep's available on limited edition green/glitter cassette (though with only 20 copies produced you better be quick) and as a name your price download from Dead Invoices Records :  https://deadinvoicesrecords.bandcamp.com/album/sniff-another-ep

  This is the lead track, it's a blast. It's called Namaste The Fuck Away From Me...
