can a group of self-admitted dorks manage to
rock faces off? The answer to such a dichotomic
question may remain somewhere between Weezer
and The Cars. Built By Snow's driving guitar
riffs, unique three part vocals, and synthetic
keyboard melodies combine to form energetic power
pop songs that evoke just a hint of 80's nostalgia. The
quartet began in February of 2006 and has been
gathering a devoted fan base at many esteemed
clubs around Austin. After winning a Battle
of the Bands in early 2007, they recorded their
debut EP, Noise.
Noise, which was released in
September 2007, is full of witty powerpop songs
about girls, teenage hope, dorks, NASA engineers,
and robots. The independent film "Blind
Man" featured one of the lead tracks from the
EP, 'Sleeping Machines,' and the laugh-out-loud
funny video for the song 'Drag Away' won 3rd
place in the Project Breakout Rock Video Contest.
Watch for new rad videos and a sophomore EP already
in the works. Rest assured that Built By
Snow doesn't take themselves nearly as seriously
as this band bio does.
