If truth-twisting has a sound, it would be the dynamic rock flair, the foxy vocal delivery, and the eloquent lyricism in Shannon Darcy’s “Snakes and Ladders.”

Hailing from Essex, the singer/songwriter Shannon Darcy has taken music as a safe refuge since a very young age, feeding her musical experience through local events and competitions. Years later, she finally releases her debut single, “Snakes and Ladders,” demonstrating everything she has to offer, from vocal prowess to artistry in writing and bold performance.

“Snakes and Ladders” is a game where we were taught that bad deeds take you down, making you repeat your steps again. In real life, on the other hand, people have distorted their nature, thinking that being manipulative snakes is the way to go higher. Shannon Darcy’s single, which portrays this toxic type of person using an electric rock sound with a punk timbre, evokes the nostalgic recollections of both the game and the vintage sound.

The song begins on the right foot, offering an edgy intro that gives a solid hint to what’s to come. Darcy has a captivating, charismatic voice as well as a slaying delivery. The chorus, in particular, is highly infectious, illustrating the bitter taste of sneaky acts. The instrumentation keeps up the vocals’ energy, and together they build up the desired dark atmosphere.

This may be the skilled artist’s first release, yet it’s a sonically wild verification of how much mature musicianship this artist has and how bright a future is right ahead of her!
