Too Much Red

from UN by Snow Giants



“We’re all passionate improvisers and love the freedom that this gives us when we play live. So it seemed only natural to begin this album by recording live improvisations in the studio – resulting in about three hours of exciting new material to work with.

A great studio album is somewhat different from a live album. Since the recording sessions took place we’ve added layers, refined it and boiled it down into a really structured and much more produced 45 minutes of music.

At its core though this is still improvised and the end results could not have been achieved any other way.”
