Grunge – Songs For Polarbears
01st September 1998
Record Review

Filthy guitars smother the debut album from snow patrol, the most american sounding non-american band to be touring the uk. it feels like the dandy warhols pulling back the reigns of the pixies and then has a nutty surprise for you with some seriously cool scratching by the time you get to ‘absolute gravity’. snow patrol are a band who really come into their element live and this is a worthy first album with plenty of diversity and noise. there are plenty of softer moments but it’s the noise we love them for.
