Having the same otherworldliness as their first EP 'Waves Freeze To Rolling Hills', Snow City Radio unfolds a collection of four new heartfelt folk ditties. Brimming with inviting melodies, thoughtful lyrics, and carefully orchestrated treats, The Lost Cavalry’s well crafted songs are a thing of beauty. With an incredible instrumental prowess, the band delivers sharp and insightful instrumentation: concertina, ukulele, bass, drums, guitar, cello, glockenspiel, piano, synths and samplers.
Swirling melodies, a certain soothing sweetness with captivating and spirited storytelling, Snow City Radio is both a melodic and narrative gem.
