On Notice: Snow Ghosts - 'A Small Murmuration'
Ross Tones is a bass musician from Bristol operating under the alias Throwing Snow. Now allied with singer Augustus Ghost (Hannah Cartwright) they form the duo Snow Ghosts; the alternative, trip-hop tandem released their debut album 'A Small Murmuration' last month. "The Hunted" creeps up from the depths of analog synths; "Covenant" has gothic drums and bass blended with shadowy vocals and electric currents; "Time Listens" gives more of a folk tune with guitars and violins; "Untangle Me" shows their deep house affiliation. I love pieces of music that feel like a journey, which drew me to this one. Check out these songs below and stream the EP in it's entirety here.
