Snaig Tharta was a collaborative project between Scott Candey of GRUNTSPLATTER & his wife Nora Candey. It’s difficult to compartmentalize, Experimental Darkwave, Lynchian Dream Pop, Doomy Space Rock, Shoegaze… there is some of all that and into the miasma of swirling guitars and electronics traditional instruments like harp, violin, and banjo are nestled in. Nora has since passed away. At some point in the future I may remix this with additional tracks for a proper release.
