Snowblink mark their musical return with 'How Now'
Daniela Gesundheit and Dan Goldman, aka Snowblink, have spent much of the last four years (that's how long it's been since they released their last album Inner Classics) splitting their time between Toronto and Los Angeles as well as travelling across Europe and North America. But they haven't just been sitting idle; they've also appeared on records with MGMT, Ed Droset and Nat Baldwin. In 2012, they were invited to join Feist's band at the Polaris Gala, which helped birth a working relationship; the first results of which are now available in 'How Now'.
The band are calling their sound "non-denominational devotional pop music," which is a rather odd description, if you ask me. But despite what it's called, 'How Now' is a slow burning indie pop number with clean, clear instrumentation and Gesundheit's almost spoke work-like delivery while Feist's vocal takes the centre stage. The track is taken from their forthcoming album, which is due in the Spring via Outside Music.
