Music for the ears-3


Snow Patrol

I heard this band recently. And I must say I’m touched. Its overwhelming! here is what one oughtaa know about Snow Patrol

Featuring a dynamic fusion of several alternative stylistic touchstones Snow Patrol’s compositions combine songwriting aptitude with guitar rock’s sharpest strains. Originally from
Northern Ireland, Gary Lightbody (vocals, guitar) and Mark McClelland (bass, keyboards) first got together in
Dundee University, Scotland, where they were studying, and prior to the addition of Jonny Quinn (drums), who completed the lineup. Signed to the
U.K.’s Jeepster label in 1998, they released their debut album, Songs for Polar Bears, in August of that same year. The record was a large success across the
U.K., where they also gained a large fan base for their live show. The British trio graduated soon after, and decided to move from
Dundee to
Glasgow in late 2000. Their second full-length, When It’s All Over We Still Have to Clear Up, was released in April 2001. Quickly thereafter, guitarist Nathan Connolly was added to the group, and Snow Patrol found themselves a deal with Polydor. With the success of singles such as “Chocolate,” “Run,” and “Spitting Games,” Final Straw sold two million copies in their native
U.K. It also became the 26th most popular British album of that year. In March 2005, founding member Mark McClelland left the band to pursue other avenues, leaving Snow Patrol a trio with Lightbody, Quinn, and Connolly. Shortly thereafter, former Terra Diablo bass player Paul Wilson and touring keyboardist Tom Simpson were permanently added to the band. An opening slot on U2’s Vertigo Tour of Europe followed in summer 2005. Snow Patrol’s fourth album, the epic Eyes Open arrived in May 2006.
