Snowden journeyed through a very provocative set of songs at the Earl this past Saturday, Nov. 29 that was everything from shoe-gazed epic masterpieces to killer indie rock dance jams.
The entire band gelled extremely well together throughout the entire course of the main set and quick encore. Lead singer and guitarist Jordan Jeffries echo-esque voice amazingly blended into to the songs themselves as a beautiful secondary accessory and then at times took a complete upfront role.
The Joy Division thing cannot be ignored and that of course is a good thing. Like JD, they exhibited a knack for playing stellar goth punk rock with substance that at times was danceable and at other times extremely low-key, brooding, slow, dark, introspective and very understated. The now defunct Ride definitely comes to mind in that regard.
Drummer Chandler Rentz kept a very frenetic pace that continued to draw the audience in and rocked out. And wonderful musicianship from other bandmates Corinne Lee and David Payne completed the picture of Snowdens show that was nothing less than fantastic.
And even with all of the dark introspection, the set struck a balance between being one where you could totally party out but at the same time be completely enlightened and educated by an exciting band that continues to go in very interesting directions.
ooooohhhh, I'm so excited!! I can't wait to see them together!
come on man you know you got a bromance. you probably still rock that OutKast…
Yes, 14 is the correct answer. I'll pass your info along to the group's manager,…
That was January of 2007, and they are 21 now, so I'm guessing 14?
