by Snark

We're Snark! We're excited to share our new song "Stay" with you. It's an oddly positive song about losing a loved one and searching for closure. We tackle a relatively heavy topic with a high-energy song that you can bop to - because there's nothing more cathartic than dancing away that darkness.
