4.0 out of 5 stars Mining The Misery, 9 July 2013
This review is from: A Small Murmuration (Audio CD)
If two like souls find themselves to be fundementally miserable
it makes very good sense that they should be miserable together.

Snow Ghosts are duo Ross Tones and Hannah Cartwright and their album
'A Small Murmuration' is a largely gloomy affair which makes much from
the relatively simple formula of dark, brooding synth inventions and
haunted, witchy vocals, delivered in credibly quasi-medieval tones by
Ms Cartwright's sonorous voice. It's serious stuff but nonetheless curiously
absorbing. Those creatures of the night with a predilection for dressing
in swathes of basic black will doubtless find a good deal to love here.

There are ten songs in the set and one must admire their creators'
sustained determination to maintain an atmosphere of abject desolation.
Those who know me well understand my occasional enthusiasm for a little
Stygian diversion and compositions such as the tenebrous opening number
'The Hunter', a pulsing percussive sonic cloud rising to a powerful coda;
'Covenant', with its echoing fractured vocals and abrasive electronic
foundations; the traditional folksy melody of 'Gallows Strung' wrapped up
in an epic widescreen arrangement and the acutely unsettling final track
'In The Deep', are all well set to ensure we experience a sleepless night!

A happy little nightmare from top to tail.

Recommended.
