Best Local Indie-Rock Act: Snowden

Staff Pick

If you ask local concert promoters what they think about SNOWDEN, they’ll praise the band for its professionalism: The quartet turns up for a gig on time, doesn’t cause any problems, draws a capacity audience and puts on a great show. The same could be said of its music. On the band’s 2005 full-length Anti-Anti, the music sounds tight and efficient, producing a wintry atmosphere that revolves around melancholy group leader Jordan Jeffares’ voice without dwelling in it. Despite their economy, the songs are full of odd little twists, from the way Jeffares sings almost haltingly to the fact that many don’t have identifiable choruses. Unlike many of Atlanta’s underground rock bands, Snowden doesn’t try to make a spectacle to get attention. It’s quietly subversive.
