Alt Indie Rocker Project, Snow Villain, Drop Comic-Book Inspired Video
Snow Villain’s new EP offers an honest and raw glimpse of central figure, Grant Goldsworthy’s life while the songs were being produced. “I Don’t Know,” both the track and official music video, serve as an homage to 90’s nostalgia by using soaring, riff-based guitars. The video itself, was comic book inspired, and features a clash between Snow Villain and paradigms of control. Goldsworthy’s creative input and credentials in the industry have elevated his profile, attracting collaborators he feels are a good fit for each production and/or project Snow Villain develops. Goldsworthy and a mix of players are gearing up to bring the first installment of EPs this April 2018, which will be available on all major platforms. More material leading up to Snow Villain’s EP and show announcements coming soon.
