With the upcoming release of his full-length debut LP, Mosaic, Throwing Snow has made his album available to stream online. The album is set to be released on June 2nd on UK label Houndstooth. Listen to “Mosaic” by Throwing Snow above.
Throwing Snow is the solo project of London-based Ross Tones, who has collaborated with augmented reality app Layar to bring his kaleidoscopic album art to life. Beyond Layar, Tones has integrated his art into different aspects of his work, which can be noted in the repetition of imagery between his cover art and the video for “The Tempest feat. Adda Kaleh,” which can be watched here.
Throwing Snow has also announced a string of UK and European tour dates this summer, including a London record release show and a set at next month’s Sonar Festival in Barcelona, with all dates below. Fans can pre-order Mosaic on iTunes and the Houndstooth store and the tracklisting for Mosaic can be found below.
