The debut album, The Dionysian Season, earned the band a nomination for best newcomer in the Icelandic Music Awards.
The band has an eclectic, lo-fi psychedelic pop sound.
“The murky warmth of Just Another Snake Cult’s production is constantly imaginative. Every song seems to evolve by somersaulting, and it’s only once your little pop-loving heart is dancing that you notice the mild psychotic edge, and get a sense of something foreboding hiding away deep within. And that’s The Beach Boys through and through.”

“Wonderful and über-catchy lo-fi psychedelic indie-pop”

“Iceland Airwaves: Five Bands You Must See […] mixes Brian Wilson with Ariel Pink and comes up with something truly compelling and original. Just Another Snake Cult’s sound pulls off that rare and peculiar trick of balancing the right influences with just enough originality to blow minds and capture hearts. We like this a lot.”

“[…] eccentric but accessible style, which merges psychedelic indie pop with synthesized wizardry often self-programmed […] The effect has been referred to as that of a layered one-person Phil Spector-style wall of sound, made all the more lo-fi by its recording on a hand-me-down laptop. […] The big group played an endearingly ramshackle set at the KEX Hostel with just about any instrument you could find.”

“A combination of insane synthesizers and singer-songwriter staples — and in this case, perhaps influence from The Beach Boys — Just Another Snake Cult frequently sounds something like Cryptacize, only with male vocals.”
