about

Snow Ghosts is a stirring collaboration between Throwing Snow and London-based ensemble, Augustus Ghost. Sounding something like the dreamchild of Clubroot, Zola Jesus, Björk and Various Production and dominated by Hannah Cartwright's arresting, folksy vocals. Through his work as Throwing Snow Ross has gained plaudits from all sides, manifested most recently through invitations to support Bonobo on his forthcoming tour, as well as Thom Yorke’s Atoms For Peace project, while Hannah comes from a songwriting background, having previously collaborated with Phaeleh as well as singing in the band Masakichi.

Track Name: Murder Cries
We wandered through the darkness of the day To show me where the years have slipped away Its idle hands that dig the grave So give your fingers what they crave The flowers bloomed as bright as blood Your feather crown fell in the mud We said to death, well not today...bring tomorrow what it may You’ll find me where the crows fly, with my feather crown, brittle and dry
Drinking the tears from their beady eyes, the murder, the murder she cries
Where the crows fly (murder she cried) where the crows fly (murder she cried) Where the crows fly (to show me where the years...) (murder she cried)
Where the crows fly (It’s idle hands...) (murder she cried)
We wandered through the darkness of the day (where the crows) to show me where the years have slipped away (where the crows)
It’s idle hands that dig the grave (where the crows fly)
So give your fingers what they crave
You’ll find me where the crows fly, with my feather crown, brittle and dry
Drinking the tears from their beady eyes, the murder, the murder she cries
Where the crows fly (murder she cried) where the crows fly (murder she cried)
Where the crows fly (murder she cried) where the crows fly (murder she cried)
Where the crows fly (we wandered through the darkness) murder she cried
Where the crows fly (to show me where the years) murder she cried
Where the crows fly (its idle hands...) murder she cried
Where the crows fly (So give your fingers) murder she cried
