Snow Ghosts’ new single ‘The Hunted’ is available now on Houndstooth. The track originally appeared on their critically acclaimed debut album ‘A Small Murmuration’ and it has been chosen for the new ‘X-Men Apocalypse’ film trailer. Watch below.
Throwing Snow, aka Ross Tones, first started working with Augustus Ghost, aka Hannah Cartwright, after she first arrived in England in 2008. Hannah comes from a songwriting background, having previously collaborated with Phaeleh as well as singing in the band Masakichi, while Ross possesses more electronic influences – his work as Throwing Snow has gained plaudits from all sides, manifested most recently through invitations to support Bonobo and Thom Yorke’s Atoms For Peace project. Together, the pair shared a mutual influence of the shadowy elements of folk and metal, and it is through these reference points that Snow Ghosts took shape. Together they released two albums ‘A Small Murmuration’ in 2013 and ‘A Wrecking’ in 2015. They are currently recording their follow-up album in London.
The band have also shared a video for the track. Directed by Craig Murray, who has previously worked with the likes of Mogwai and Blood Red Shoes, the video is aptly an eerie tale of chase and escape.
