Video Review: Dog in the Snow – Concrete Walls

164163_138538332871475_4896450_nIf there’s anything we can’t deny here at Sound and Motion, it’s that Britain is home to far too many unsigned acts that have yet to get the recognition they deserve and Dog in the Snow are a prime example of this.

Hailing from Brighton, the band consists of the beautiful vocals of Helen Ganya Brown with the equally talented support from Marie-Eve de Gaultier. Both these girls’ possess not only a voice which could put any chart-topping auto tuned star to shame, but they have the ability to write lyrics which are both empowering and uplifting.

Latest track, Concrete Wall allows you to get completely and utterly lost in the melody. Although the track never really seems to kick in like you might hope, the video will have you hooked with its almost eerie ghost-like image of Helen on screen with various shots of these white concrete walls and images reflecting this idea of confinement throughout. Very fitting with the songs title portraying this sense of being very much claustrophobic, the same effect the video will have on you as the flashing images and angelic vocals keep your eyes and ears hooked, not to mention you’ll end up humming the beat of this song for the rest of the day.

For something a bit more relaxing and easy going then Dog in the Snow are the ones to check out, with their therapeutic vocals and enchanting videos, definitely home-grown talent to watch out for.
