Inspired by Kate Bush's '50 Words For Snow', 1950s short movie 'Arctic Thrills' and Rev. EJ Peck's book on Eskimo Grammar, 'Words For Snow' is an EP reflecting on the romanticism of the 100 words for snow in the Inuit vocabulary.

Written during the Winter months in my Manchester studio with lots of analogue kit.

Each limited hand packaged CD comes with artwork postcard, paper snowflakes and card wallet wrapped in a veil of white mesh.
