Discovering new music that really stands out is always a pleasure. We sometimes come across new music that stands out created by artists that use our products, which is both a pleasure and a privilege. As you might have already guessed, Throwing Snow is one of those artists.
He first showed up on our radar around a year ago and he hasn’t exactly been work shy during that period. With a solid amount of great releases on the excellent Houndstooth label added to his growing back catalogue and increasingly high-profile gigs at places like Sonar, it quite frankly doesn’t seem like there’s much Throwing Snow isn’t artistically capable of.
His sound has been poetically described as possessing: ‘consistent and comforting warmth, while still glistening with a serene kind of steely coldness.’ For our money, Ross Tones' productions are swirling, folky, frost-bitten soundscapes with enough depth, texture and grand, sweeping narrative to make you get lost in music for weeks on end.
Which is the very reason we got a little worked up when Emma from our friends at Dunkel Radio told us that Throwing Snow will be playing Saturday night at Pumpehuset (literally a stone’s throw away from AIAIAI HQ) alongside a talented cast of local heroes like Saint Cava, Darmstadt and AIAIAI favorite, Erosion Flow. This should be a night to remember.
