Fresh Snow

Fresh Snow began in 2010, as the passion project of four friends who gathered to make improvisational music based on their love of drones, noise and strongly melodic pop music. Primarily an instrumental band with a core line-up augmented by guest horn and string players (including Trent Severn’s Laura C. Bates), Fresh Snow makes German-influenced space-rock music that is alternately dissonant and melodic, robotic and danceable, violent and beautiful. Since their first show in 2011, Andy Lloyd (bass, keys), Brad Davis (guitars, keys), Jon Maki (drums), and Tim Condon (keys, etc.) have rose to prominence in the Canadian music scene through a series of critically acclaimed releases and performances at festivals such as NXNE, Wavelength, Long Winter, Suoni per il Popolo (Montreal) and Arboretum (Ottawa), their live show featuring them costumed in red hoods and wooden masks, and playing inside a pod full of projectors.
