Video of the Week: The Seventh String by Snowday

By Devora Cascante on October 16, 2014

Though Snowday is about to release their debut album, As We Travel, on November 25, this “chillout electronic duo” have been making beautiful music together for over eight years. Bonded by a mutual love of underground hip-hop and inspired by the sounds of Brian Eno and Steve Reich, these friends (Cam Sloan and Chad Skinner) will be bringing their laid back sounds to Ottawa this weekend.

“The Seventh String” is the first single from their forthcoming album and one of six videos produced in a series of live recordings called the Snowday Studio Sessions. You’ll notice a third performer in the video – that’s Tait Roswell bringing the beat to their live shows. I like the melodic, ethereal sound. Have a listen:
