Dog In The Snow
Dog In The Snow is the moniker of Brighton-based Helen Ganya Brown, accompanied by friend, musician and visual artist Eva Bowan. The band experiments with existential-driven lyrics and layers of off-kilter sounds to create a peripatetic musical landscape. The name ‘Dog In The Snow’ originates from Helen’s interest in Franz Kafka and his existential writings. In one of the only novels with a complete final chapter, (spoiler alert) ‘The Trial’ ends with the lead character getting stabbed in the heart. As he lies in a cold, snowy and deserted quarry he cries out aloud, "Like a dog!”
Inspired by the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Scott Walker and Sigur Ros, seen supporting Real Estate, D.D Dumbo and Chrysta Bell, and sharing circles with Fear of Men, Hypnotised, and artists from AntiGhost Moon Ray Collective, there’s a lot to look forward to. The band are working with producer Steve Hillier (Gary Numan, Dubstar, Food Records), tipped as one of the exciting artists in Brighton (by Gigwise) and championed by BBC Introducing in the South.
