Future Melancholy Pop Music

We are chuffed to announce the release of the brilliant new album by Johnno Casson aka SnippetFuture Melancholy Pop Music.

Future Melancholy Pop Music is an honest and mature album with a sarcastic and playful underbelly, offering 15 beautifully crafted pop songs of love, loss and life. It’s Johnno’s biggest, boldest and most thought provoking album to date and we invite you to try a slice of Future Melancholy Pop Music.

“… Johnno Casson never loses his knack for catchy sing-along melodies or his love of ear candy and intricate arrangements that somehow combine 70s pop clichés, indie tongue-in-cheek quirkyness, and warbling psychedelica…Future Melancholy Pop Music is a record to be savoured, slowly and patiently, and gently allow yourself to get drawn into Johnno Casson’s unique lyrical and musical universe.”
– Phil Vanderyken, Folk Radio UK

“If you’re unfamiliar then you’re missing a treat. His brand of adult pop is second to none. Songs of depression and the classes, and mentions of Donald Trump and racism are wrapped in some of the most fascinating sugar coated music around.”
– Paul Scott-Bates, Louder Than War

“With Future Melancholy Pop Music, Johnno offers an album that is thought-provoking and intimate. Speaking to issues and emotions that we British generally prefer to restrain behind a stiff upper lip, he opens a window upon elements of life and society that, left unaired, harbour pain. This is a brave collection, delivered through compelling vocals and wrapped in accomplished musicianship.”
– Flo Bannigan, The Revue

Following on from 2013’s critically acclaimed D.I.Y Album, Snippet takes it up a notch with a batch of killer songs cloaked in sweet layers of retro synths & hand crafted loops, topped off with vocal hooks to die for. This is music to lift your spirits & put a spring in your step.

“This is something very special,so odd and so delightful, all his songs are insanely catchy so he writes great pop hooks, all his songs have that skewed and peculiar thing about them, I wish more people knew about him, spread the word, you’ll enjoy it and you won’t regret it…I promise you this man comes up with such diverse but always interesting songs that over the whole 2 years that this introducing show has been going we’ve been repeatedly getting tracks from Snippet and every time they surprise us, every time they are really good, I promise you there is still better to come.”
