Snowing were a four-piece emo/punk band that existed from 2008 to 2011, and were from Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. They kind of formed from members of two other bands, which were Street Smart Cyclist and Boyfriends. Snowing went on to become one of the most seminal and well-known bands (others would include Algernon Cadwallader, Grown Ups, Hightide Hotel, or whoever) in this emo revival movement, or whatever you want to call it, that's been going on in the Midwest.

They are often associated with the "noodly", or "twinkly", brand of emo that has kind of taken off in recent years. Basically, they've got a whole lot of Cap'n Jazz worship going on. The guitars are kind of math-y, since they play complex and intricate parts, but are very melodic and dynamic, and so are the vocals. John can be very aggressive and almost scream-y, but can also be softer and quieter. He's also got a very distinct voice, regardless of how he's using it. He's also an excellent lyricist. The whole band just works so well together, I don't know what else needs to be said. There are very few bands that have so much to offer in every aspect of their music, and I think Snowing are one of the few that do, despite their very minimal quantity in output. I could ramble on about how amazing they are, or analyse every minuscule detail about them, but I'm kind of thinking now that that would simply be unnecessary. These guys mean so much to so many people who have experienced them, myself included. I firmly believe that they are one of the best bands in recent history, and easily one of the best in their respective niche of genre. This probably makes them sound really serious, which is stupid since that's practically the exact opposite of what they are. I love them, you love them, so let's just jam them. Oh, and John Galm has got a new band going now called Slow Warm Death. Thanks to Anonymous for the request.
