Soft as Snow Short Info

“Soft as Snow gladly slot their atmospheric, expansive synthpop right next to the bleeding edge of dance music.” – Tiny Mix Tapes

When Houndstooth A&R Rob Booth first heard the demos of Soft as Snow’s debut ‘Glass Body’ EP, he knew he’d found the act to broaden the label’s horizons beyond the fabric nightclub’s dancefloor where it was conceived. Although a number of their tracks are constructed around danceable rhythms, and swathed with such electronic archetypes as euphoric arpeggiated synths and disorientating acid washes, Soft as Snow’s music is also evidently borne of a quite contradictory, yet in their hands exceptionally complementary, alliance of a keen pop sensibility and a thirst for artistic experimentalism. The release garnered effusive praise from the likes of FADER, Dazed, Pigeons & Planes, The Line of Best Fit, Dummy, Stereogum and Tiny Mix Tapes.

To see Soft as Snow play live is to witness the release of the emotional power captured within their recorded material. Always immaculately attired to visually reflect their dualistic pop/avant-garde appeal, they have a bewitching on-stage presence. Their versatility and wide-ranging appeal has seen them headline traditional gig venues such as Birthdays and The Old Blue Last in London, play the stunning festival settings in their native Norway, and recently on the main stage at Berghain in Berlin.

So far the duo has released two well received original EPs and a remix EP featuring reworks by Stroboscopic Artefacts label boss Lucy, Gang Gang Dance’s Brian DeGraw, Gabe Gurnsey of Factory Floor and Maria Minerva. They also appear on Houndstooth’s ‘Tesselations’ CD with a brand new original track, which was released in February this year. Now based in Berlin, Soft as Snow are working on their debut album for the label.
