SNOW ROLLER – ” Y2K “

Snow Roller are an indie garage rock band from Portland. We were big fans of their anthemic debut LP, 2016’s What’s The Score, as well as last year’s follow-up XXL. They will soon release their third album Y2K, and this week they dropped a fantastic new single called “Bus 23.”

Coming off the heals of “Kings of Hartford,” the album’s sweeping first single, “Bus 23” is a steady uptempo rocker featuring rollicking guitar riffs and singer Collin Kritz’s direct, assured vocals. Meanwhile, Snow Roller’s newest member, bassist Sarah Hall, harmonizes beautifully with Kritz over the track’s catchy, heartfelt choruses. The song reminisces about a childhood friend who Collin lost contact with, and wonders whatever became of him. “Tried to say that I’m sorry to him but/ He wouldn’t accept it,” they croon together, pangs of regret and nostalgia seeping through in each vivid lyrical line. Also, the closing section of the track reaches a dramatic, stripped-down breakdown in which Hall and Kritz trade off the lines: “I wonder if I’ll ever see him/ I wonder if I’ll ever see him ever again.” It’s a cathartic conclusion to a single that waxes nostalgic on the embarrassments of youth, and a total triumph for Snow Roller.
