Sister duo Sarah and Stephanie Snyder of Deer Park Avenue have released their first single “Scars” since being signed with Muve Recordings, Switzerland’s largest independent record label. Deer Park Avenue recently finished recording a new album of 10 original songs with producer Reto Peter (Green Day, Modest Mouse, Counting Crows). While the bright, colourful sounds of their debut album channeled the California sun, their sophomore project brings something darker, tougher, and almost uncomfortably honest, with sonic and thematic elements recalling artists like Veruca Salt and Sleater Kinney.

Their father was a Swiss pastor who moved to the U.S., where the young sisters learned to play guitar and drums for the church band. Not long after Sarah and Stephanie started Deer Park Avenue, playing numerous gigs in colleges. As teenagers they moved back to Switzerland, living in Basel and Munich (Germany). Many gigs in whole Europe followed where they earned the chance to secure a deal with Hard Rock Café Europe.
In June 2016 they released their self-titled debut album and toured in the U.S. and Europe. Deer Park Avenue worked with producer Matt Bissonette (Brian Wilson, Elton John) and Gregg Bissonette (Ringo Starr, David Lee Roth) on the project. The album was featured on Amazing Radio’s Rock Show, the Deli, PopWrapped, and numerous music blogs and independent radio.
