Snowden Play the Late Show Tomorrow Night at Mercury LoungeFebruary 22nd, 2013
It began, quite literally, as a bedroom project for Jordan Jeffares. After recording demos in his Atlanta bedroom, he met other musicians who would help him breathe life into Snowden. They self-released a self-titled EP in 2005, and some of its songs then appeared on their debut LP, Anti-Anti, the following year. Their sound quickly earned them comparisons to moody NYC bands like Interpol and the Strokes—at one point the oft-traveled band was even based here—and tours with the likes of Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Snowden (above, doing “Anti-Anti” for Fearless Music) have stayed busy on the road and releasing live DVDs and EPs, and they’re finally putting out their second album, No One in Control, in May (stream one of its singles, “Keep Quiet” below). But first, they play Mercury Lounge tomorrow night.
