DOG IN THE SNOW
After touring the whole of 2016 in Fear Of Men, Helen Ganya Brown returns with her own project Dog In The Snow and the first single Magic (June 15), from her debut LP Consume Me (out October 20 on BATTLE WORLDWIDE). Magic is a lo-fi technicolour pop song, and a warm and simple introduction to an LP steeped in fragmented explorations of the self. Magic is a simple plea for fascination; to look to dreams to help recreate the magical nature of childhood, with a hope that it would seep into reality and lift away the feeling of mundanity in adulthood.
Dog In The Snow finds inspiration in the juxtapositions: the warm project title goes hand-in- hand with the grim ending of Kafka’s ‘The Trial’. Inspired by the dark underbelly of Scott Walker, the mortal anxieties of Sufjan Stevens, the glistening soundscapes of Susumu Yokota, Helen also finds influence from her own experience of being mixed race and a foreigner to her homelands, whilst exploring self-identity in its culture and ideas.
Magic will be available to download for free, and also available on the door for all who attend the June shows with a link to exclusive content.
