Throwing Snow Announces Debut Solo LP for Houndstooth, Shares New Video

UK producer Ross Tones is a machine. Not only does he maintain a slew of side projects, including Snow Ghosts, Vellico, and Alight, but his primary endeavor as Throwing Snow also continues to be quite active. Just last week, Tones dropped the Pathfinder EP for Houndstooth, and now, he's shared the details of a full-length follow-up. The 11-track LP is called Mosaic, and it's set to appear via Houndstooth on June 3. The title is said to "truly sum up the entire album, combining different influences from instruments and equipment rather than styles and musicians to form a coherent whole with varying sounds of production distilled into something cohesive." Tones himself adds, "It's little pieces of the music I love combined to form a coherent whole. Elements of folk and real instruments combined with drum funk, electronica and samples."

Along with the album details—the artwork and tracklist are below—Tones has also elected to share a new video for "The Tempest," a cut featuring fellow Red Bull Music Academy participant Adda Kaleh which kicked off the Pathfinder EP and will also appear on the new album. Director Rick Robin says that the kaleidoscopic clip depicts "a galaxy from the past, 367 light years ago. It's about war and peace. Evolving and never-ending." To our eyes, it's full of trippy visuals and what looks like a series of angelic figures. The video can also be viewed below.
