Born out of a musical friendship and understanding, the London-based group Snowpoet combine melody and poetry in an improvisational effort inspired by artists such as Bjork, Joni Mitchell, Tom Waits and Ólöf Arnalds, as well as poets Sylvia Plath, W.B. Yeats and Philip Larkin.

With a core composed of the paired songwriting skills of coveted bassist Chris Hyson and award-winning vocalist Lauren Kinsella, the duo lead a malleable live set-up which includes Nick Costley-White on guitar, Matt Robinson on piano/keyboards, Dave Hamblett on drums and Josh Arcoleo, whose portfolio includes work with Joss Stone and Ghostpoet, on saxophone.

Compelling. Snowpoet are at turns strange and beautiful.

Black Plastic

 

Brilliant.

The musical intelligence behind Butterfly is clear the entire time that the EP flutters its wings, as it is entirely understandable why Snowpoet would draw comparisons to Bjork, one of the great alternative innovators.
