Snow Giants First Pressing 1

PRESS RELEASE:

Snow Giants debut album UN to be released: May 25th 2015

Join Snow Giants for a special launch event from 8pm on Monday May 25th 2015 at the Bread and Roses, Plymouth (free entry)

Coining the phrase ‘improvisational omni-fusion’, the trio draw influences from a wide range of genres including prog, rock, jazz, ambient, world music and the avant-garde.

Bassist Al Swainger spoke about the making of the album, recorded at Sound Gallery Studios, Exeter:

“We’re all passionate improvisers and love the freedom that this gives us when we play live. It seemed only natural to begin this album by recording live improvisations in the studio – resulting in about three hours of exciting new material to work with.

A great studio album is somewhat different from a great live album though. Since the recording sessions took place we’ve added layers, refined it and boiled it down into a a much more produced 45 minutes of music.

Starting with improvisations has given the tracks some really unique structures and the end results could not have been achieved any other way.”

UN can be pre-ordered at https://snowgiants.bandcamp.com/album/un where you can also hear and download the first track, ‘SummerRain Town’
