"Snowbride is Rachel McIntosh and Drew Haddon (of Warning Light), two artists from the Atlanta area. The band started making music together in 2013, recording and self-releasing a debut collection of eclectic lo-fi psych called Southern Minds. The band conceived of three short albums, a "Southern Trilogy," to explore the melting pot of the modern South. Southern Minds' follow-up, Fateful 808s finds the experimental duo refining their approach with a more focused use of synthesizers and beatmaking, produced over the course of a wet hot Georgia summer.
The sounds were inspired by cruising around Atlanta while listening to ambient records in traffic, but still hearing the bass-heavy hip hop beats from the surrounding cars. Fateful 808s explores the dubbed out, Southern-Psych-Noir of modern Southern cities. Snowbride hopes to conclude their trilogy later in 2015 with the release of Small Town Synthetics, a combination Zine/Album that focuses on a decidedly small town DIY aesthetic, while further developing their mix of shimmering electronics and psychedelic pastoral vibes."
