Snow Ghosts return with their sophomore album, “A Wrecking”, the follow-up to their 2013 debut “A Small Murmuration”. Sharing a mutual influence of the shadowy elements of British folklore and the heavier side of experimental noise, a disparate array of references combines to form Snow Ghosts’ bewitching and intoxicating sound. Ross Tones (aka Throwing Snow) and Hannah Cartwright (Augustus Ghost) are now joined by multi-instrumentalist Oliver Knowles (EXES) to pool their individual inspirations, ideas and styles under the moniker of Snow Ghosts.
Less focused on rhythm and more on melody and instrumentation, “A Wrecking” ebbs and flows to mirror the vocal meanings; the guitars reflect the sea with panning and reverb effects while a haunting electric violin slips in and out of the record’s consciousness.
