Snow Patrol – The Artist/s
Snow Patrol are a Northern Irish-Scottish rock band, formed in 1994 in Dundee, Scotland, consisting of Gary Lightbody (vocals, guitar), Nathan Connolly (guitar, backing vocals), Paul Wilson (bass guitar, backing vocals), Jonny Quinn (drums), and Johnny McDaid (piano, guitar, backing vocals). Initially an indie rock band, the band rose to prominence in the early-mid 2000s as part of the post-Britpop movement. Connolly joined Snow Patrol in 2002, and after their major-label debut album, Final Straw, the following year, with “Run” the album’s major hit, the band rose to national fame. The album was certified 5× platinum in the UK. Their next studio album, Eyes Open (2006), and its hit single, “Chasing Cars”—the most widely played song of the 21st century on UK radio—propelled the band to greater international fame. The album topped the UK Albums Chart and was the best-selling British album of the year. During the course of their career, Snow Patrol have won seven Meteor Ireland Music Awards and have been nominated for six Brit Awards and one Grammy Award. Final Straw, Eyes Open and A Hundred Million Suns albums have shifted 10 million copies worldwide.
You’re All I Have – The Song
‘You’re All I Have’ is a song by British alternative rock band Snow Patrol. It was released on 24 April 2006 as the lead single from their fourth studio album, Eyes Open (2006). The song was used by RTÉ sport to promote the return of The Sunday Game for the 2006 GAA Championships. It became the band’s second big hit after the success of “Run” in 2004, peaking at number 7 on the UK Singles Chart. According to Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody, he has said that “the song is about a damaging but fulfilling relationship, something that terrifies you, but you can’t quite bring yourself to look away”.
The Snowflake – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a snowflake similar to that of the bands logo.
A snowflake is a single ice crystal that has achieved a sufficient size, and may have amalgamated with others, then falls through the Earth’s atmosphere as snow. Each flake nucleates around a dust particle in supersaturated air masses by attracting supercooled cloud water droplets, which freeze and accrete in crystal form. Complex shapes emerge as the flake moves through differing temperature and humidity zones in the atmosphere, such that individual snowflakes differ in detail from one another, but may be categorised in eight broad classifications and at least 80 individual variants. The main constituent shapes for ice crystals, from which combinations may occur, are needle, column, plate, and rime. Snow appears white in colour despite being made of clear ice. This is due to diffuse reflection of the whole spectrum of light by the small crystal facets of the snowflakes
