SNOW PATROL - EYES OPEN, album released 2006.
Encoded 192Kbps [Lame] mp3. Covers included.
Snow Patrol is an alternative rock band from Northern Ireland signed to Polydor Records. The band was formed in Scotland by vocalist/guitarist Gary Lightbody and bassist/keyboardist Mark McClelland, two students from Northern Ireland, who were at the time pursuing an education in Dundee, Scotland.
Snow Patrol are frequently compared to Coldplay in the press, which seems strange as they write far better songs and do not appear to be quite so self-hating, nor as rich. Their delightfully dour little pop songs do touch on the melancholic side of things, but the lyrics are wonderfully slice-of-life descriptions. Singer-lyricist Gary Lightbody gives a shout-out to Sufjan Stevens when on the punchy Open Your Eyes he sings, The anger swells in my guts. Perhaps a better comparison would be American indie-rock act Sebadoh. Regardless, this band continues to surprise. If you went to see this mixed Scottish/Irish group on tour after hearing their wistful, breakout third album Final Straw, you might have been a bit confused by the rock juggernaut confronting you. Eyes Open is their most straightforwardly rock record yet, and thanks in large part to producer Garret Lee, it's their best. If there was ever perfect music to get lost to while driving around confused about a relationship, this is it.
