FRESH SNOW unveil a psychedelic maze through their “I CAN’T DIE” video, directed by Benjamin Portas, premiere via AD HOC & featured on BOOOOOOOM  //  ONE LP out now via Hand Drawn Dracula (ORDER HERE)

“Hands and eyes whirl in surreal and vibrant landscapes until the song becomes centered around a slow bass line. The video has the same addictive and hypnotic effect of that Windows 95 screensaver maze. As geometric shapes pass through one another, it’s easy to let your mind sink into a meditative trance.” ~ AD HOC

“a digital shitshow of mutating eyes, planetary spheres and ritualistic activities, all presented through what seems like a ’90s VR filter” ~ EXCLAIM! MAGAZINE

FRESH SNOW share “Three-Way Mirror” stream via FLOOD Magazine & land SONG OF THE DAY over at UK’s THE LINE OF BEST FIT.   New LP “ONE” out this Friday // PRE-ORDER LIMITED WHITE VINYL HERE.

“Insistent looping electronics build and evolve around a simple, yet hopeful piano melody. This gradually becomes less organic, twisting and contorting as layers of keyboards and squelching 8-bit synths pile up before giving way to simple handclaps and undulating bass. It’s a delicate and euphoric listen – deservedly our Song Of The Day.” ~ THE LINE OF BEST FIT

“an earnest, aching love song. “Je prends un rendezvous avec mon homme dans la cinquième dimension, et je me regarde pour la première fois” a female voice says – in lightly arpeggiating layers of piano, the sound cascading in a bright drizzle until, suddenly, we’re off, click-clacking up to speed and out into space. It’s a deft and affecting piece of music delivered with refreshing minimalism” ~ FLOOD MAGAZINE
 

 
“Great bands know how to challenge themselves while capitalizing on their strengths, and Fresh Snow have done exactly that” ~ EXCLAIM!

“Fresh Snow continues to be the breath of fresh air post-rock really needs” ~ GRAY OWL POINT

“Fresh Snow tune somehow crept under my skin – not unlike what some might hear in the Stranger Things soundtrack –
pulsing and throbbing, creating something altogether animal-istic” ~ AUSTIN TOWN HALL

“Fact is Fresh Snow excel at pretty well everything they try on” ~ RIDE THE TEMPO

ONE is an incredibly wide-ranging beast, with each track mastering a different form,
texture or genre while still keeping a core focus” ~ METHODS UNSOUND


FRESH SNOW premiere another track from their brand new album “ONE” (9/9) // Stream “January Skies” via CLASH (UK).

Epic musicianship that looks out towards the extremes” ~ CLASH


FRESH SNOW premiere their track “I Can’t Die” via the good people at THE FADER.

“I CAN’T DIE Is Eternally Menacing Krautrock – a classic krautrock marathon morphs into something sacred with the introduction of an Italian boy’s choir and church organ, and closes with warm psychedelic trails” ~ THE FADER

“The mutant krautrock epic levitates beyond the 10-minute mark and is bludgeoned by steamroller vocals courtesy of Fucked Up’s Damian Abraham” ~ UNDER THE RADAR

The “appropriately disorienting” video was directed by Ghostprom, who also directed the “Proper Burial” video. FRESH SNOW’s new mini-album “WON” is available now in the HDD STORE on Premium Digital and Limited Edition White Vinyl.


FRESH SNOW shares “Don’t Fuck A Gift Horse In The Mouth” (Feat. Fucked Up’s Damian Abraham) stream on CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND, STEREOGUM, and EXCLAIM Magazine! WON available on digital & limited white vinyl 09/11 – BUY HERE
 
“close to 11 minutes in length, with the arrangement based around an insistent, fuzzy rock groove. It takes a dreamy turn a few minutes in, but the peace is interrupted when Abraham begins screaming bloody murder” ~ EXCLAIM!

“The 10-minute opus opens with clamoring drums and a methodical bass line curling up against synthesizer stutters. It’s a patient song, slowly building with layers of fuzz and locking into a groove. – It’s a powerful epic, contorting between psych meltdowns and post-rock sincerity.” ~ CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

“And now, the motherlode. Fresh Snow have shared an enormous 11-minute monolith that comes bearing the generally amazing title “Don’t Fuck A Gift Horse In The Mouth.”” ~ STEREOGUM
