Snowden Signs to Jade Tree

When a strange band appears on a label showcase, it’s usually a good sign that said band is about to sign to the label. Such is the case with Snowden. I noticed this band appeared on Jade Tree's South by Southwest showcase. So I figured I'd swing by Snowden's website, and it took all of one listen to the band's music to realize that this band is one that deserves your attention. Their music is pretty and lush and atmospheric and a little bit dance-worthy; you can download their debut EP Snowden in its entirety, too, as well as an excellent cover of The Zombies' classic "Time of the Season. Snowden will be releasing its debut album, Anti-Anti, this summer.

The band will also make several appearances at SXSW:
