Brooklyn, New York's Snowmine calls their music "Ambient Psych Pop". Frontman and classical composer Grayson Sanders incorporates echo pedals, tribal beats, electro-acoustic soundscapes, and classical orchestrations to create the band's rich sound. Pop Wreckoning describes the band thusly:
If Jurassic Park had a houseband, it would sound like Snowmine.
Snowmine has release four singles/double singles in the last two years. Go behind the scenes with the band in the nearby video box.
