Message from the Editor

Hello and welcome to issue 39 of SNACK,

We’ve lots of ground to cover this month, so let’s dive straight in. We’re delighted to welcome the mighty Warpaint to our May front cover spot. It’s been six years since their last album, Heads Up, and with the recording of new long-player Radiate Like This interrupted by the pandemic, the band found both benefits and strains in being forced to take their time and work separately – much like most of us the past couple of years. They chatted with Andrew Reilly about their more meditative approach, touring, babies, feeling re-energised, and reclaiming your identity. 

Elsewhere, Alistair Braidwood chats to Donna McLean about her memoir Small Town Girl and reclaiming her truth after ending up at the centre of one of the biggest anti-democratic scandals of our time.

Dig in deeper and you’ll find our interview with the ever-brilliant Kathryn Joseph (if you haven’t checked out her new album, for you who are the wronged, I’d advise sticking it on this very second). Also, Keira Brown speaks to Moses McKenzie about his debut literary novel, An Olive Grove in Ends, a resonant coming-of-age story at times tender and lyrical but at others bleak and despairing, about a Black British community in Bristol. 

As for the rest? I’m sure you’ll find your way around.

Stay safe and we’ll see you in June.

Kenny Lavelle
