Dingus on Music:
"There is something so heartbreakingly beautiful about Snowbeast. Perhaps it’s the mixture of growly vocals and smooth guitars. Whatever it is, I can feel the emotion just bursting out and it’s enough to set my soul at ease. This is an album that has impact and purpose"

Wake the Deaf:
"▲ S N O W B E A S T ▲, is a swirling concoction of musical styles that is hard to pin down. There are relaxed surf rock baselines (‘Backyards and Alleyways’), Vampire Weekend-esque African influences (‘No One Wants to Live in the Ghetto’), electronic beats and fuzzy repetitive choruses (‘A Howl Like a Wolf’) and in-your-face shouty bits (‘Snowbeast’ and ‘Somewhere, Ontario’)."

Vancouver Weekly:
"Snowbeast’s sound is like a goody bag stuffed with Beach Fossils rhythmic beats, Vampire Weekend well-strung pop and a generous scoop of roughed up Julian Casablacas-esque vocals."

Sound Vat:
"The EP has two contrasting but equally important traits when speaking of the band’s talent – cohesive to the max, it sounds like a full record, but because it’s only five songs long and also awesome, it leaves you wanting so much more."

What's Protocol?:
"This Canadian trio stood out immediately. There’s something that just sounds so good to my ears in that jangly, lo-fi rock and roll, nostalgic vibe, I find myself hitting play over and over again."

Track Name: SNOWBEAST
Leave me alone in a wooden house
With all of my fears and all of my doubts
If only i could put my mind at ease
And capture a glimpse of a Snowbeast

But i don't see
Colours anymore
Ever since you left

And i cant speak
Even if i tried
Cause you ripped out my tongue

And i cant hear
When you call my name
Cause you never did

And i cant taste
Your lips on mine
Cause they're on some other guy

But i can feel, and i can love
Yeah, i can feel, and i can love

But i cant do this anymore
I cant do this anymore
I cant do this anymore

Leave me alone in a wooden house
With all of my fears and all of my doubts
If only i could put my mind at ease
And capture a glimpse of a Snowbeast
Track Name: SOMEWHERE, ONTARIO
Broke down my arms were full
Don't know where we should go
Worked all day killing trees
Washed their blood of our jeans

It takes a push make a storm
A brave bee to make a swarm
Dark red leaves on my hands
After we're making plans

Broke down my arms were full
Don't know where we should go
So let me know when you're home
From somewhere Ontario

We're young our blood is gold
We're young our blood is gold
We're young our blood is gold
We are, we are getting old

I will run to the shore
Setting fires to the floor
I will run to the shore
Setting fires to the floor
I will run to the shore
Setting fires to the floor
I will run to the shore
Setting fires to the floor
Track Name: BACKYARDS AND ALLEYWAYS
Backyards and alleyways
Skateboards and roller blades
It's all stayed the same
It's all stayed the same

It's you that has changed
It's you that has changed
It's you that has changed
It's you that has changed

Backyards and alleyways
Skateboards and roller blades
It's all stayed the same
It's all stayed the same

It's you that has changed
It's you that has changed
It's you that has changed
It's you that has changed

It's you that has changed
It's you that has changed
It's you that has changed
It's you that has changed
Track Name: NO ONE WANSTA LIVE IN THE GHETTO
Everyone says you gotta go outside
I just wanna be left inside
Everyone says you gotta find yourself
I just wanna be by myself

And kids at the beach are running around
I'm in the water being pushed around
I just wanna be pushed around
Just gonna let the waves push me around

No one wansta live in the ghetto
No one wansta live in the ghetto
No one wansta live in the ghetto
No one wansta live in the ghetto

No one wansta live in the ghetto
No one wansta live in the ghetto
No one wansta live in the ghetto
Maybe we'll live in the ghetto

Maybe life's good in the ghetto
Maybe we'll be happy in the ghetto
Take a bus down to the East Monroe
And when we get we'll just lay low

I just wanna dream all day long
I just wanna dream all day long
I just wanna dream all day long
I just wanna dream all day long

No one wansta live in the ghetto
No one wansta live in the ghetto
No one wansta live in the ghetto
Maybe we'll live in the ghetto
Track Name: A HOWL LIKE A WOLF
We woke up on the beach
We lost what we found, what we found was our beat
We sold out for some meat
We wanted something else to eat

One day...

We played for some kids
They bought out name on some disks
They showed all their friends
So we drove, and we drove, and we drove off a cliff

One day...

As we were falling down
As we were falling down
I swear I heard a sound
I swear I heard a sound

As we were falling down
As we were falling down
I swear I heard a sound
I swear I heard a sound

As we were falling down
As we were falling down
I swear I heard a sound
I swear I heard a sound

As we were falling down
As we were falling down
I swear I heard a sound
I swear I heard a sound

As we were falling down
As we were falling down
I swear I heard a sound
I swear I heard a sound

A howl like a wolf
A howl like a wolf
A howl like a wolf
A howl like a wolf

A howl like a wolf
A howl like a wolf
A howl like a wolf
A howl like a wolf
