Someone once told me that some members of Snow Patrol used to lie and say that they are members of Belle & Sebastian to get into the student union club at the Glasgow School of Art. Front man Gary Lightbody has since gained much acclaim (at least from my friends and I).
Snow Patrol are from Northern Ireland. Their new album Eyes Open is really quite fantastic. I would post every track if I wasn’t so morally conflicted. I think it might have something to do with Gary Lightbody’s plaintive vocals that make these songs so beautiful and rocking.
The UK release was May 1st and the first single was You're All I Have. The US release is set for May 9th with the first single being Hands Open. Appropriately they drop Sufjan’s name on Hands Open. Whatever, Sufjan is cool beans. I am also posting Set Fire To The Third Bar (featuring Martha Wainwright), this also is just such a great song. Ooh and Headlights On Dark Roads, dang so much awesomeness. Enjoy!
