Synth explorer Drew Haddon reinvents himself with Snowbride

In more ways than one, Drew Haddon has left a sizable mark on Atlanta's noise and experimental rock scenes. Through curating at least two noise- and noir-centric labels (formerly Sleepaway Recordings and now persistentmidnight), and being involved in an endless number of bands and solo guises (Suitcases, Roman Photos, Warning Light, et al.), Haddon has played a vital roll in the local scene for more than a decade. His latest synth-and-drum machine venture involves newcomer Rachel McIntosh (vocals, synths, field recordings) dubbed Snowbride. The duo recently made its debut as a part of Respite from the Cold VI, and has just released "Losing the City," the second track from the band's self-released Southern Minds EP.

The track's seductive and serene beat pulses through with a monotonous glee resembling Suitcases' brutalist throb while the cascading synths caress the scene in a shroud of burnt out, neon flare. Even with all of this sudden activity, Snowbride shows no sign of taking a breather, having already cued up a split with Athens' resident weirdoes Scab Queen due out at the end of February on persistentmidnight.
