09.27.13 — “Fire in the Sky” by Dog in The Snow

Helen Brown (Dog in The Snow)

If you only listen to one song tonight, make it “Fire in the Sky” by Dog in The Snow (2013, from the “Fire in the Sky” single).

Dog in the Snow is a dream-pop/post-goth recording project of Helen Ganya Brown, who comes from Brighton, England. The band name may or may not be a reference to the Belle and Sebastian song “Fox in The Snow”.

I know nothing about her or the “band”. I’ve gotten a couple of things in the mailbag about the release of this song and video, but there’s a scarcity of biographical information available. It looks like she’s been at it since about 2010. She hasn’t released any albums, and this song was released as a digital stand-alone single on September 9.

I don’t know anything about her, and I can’t even find anything about her. Listening to this song, it seems like she’s been influenced by contemporary stuff like the stunning Zola Jesus, and some 70s/80s stuff like Siouxie.

Here’s the song:

For extra credit, here’s the ghost-like video for the song:

I like it. It’s strangely like a generic late 1990s horror movie, but I like it anyway. I mean, what’s there not to like about a girl by herself in an underground pedestrian tunnel?

I wish I had more to say about this, but I literally know nothing about Dog in The Snow.

You can download the song for free from the soundcloud page.
