“The Making of You sees old Soup Dragon Jim McCulloch, plus other Glasgow indie glitterati from Teenage Fanclub and Belle and Sebastian, doing a Pentangle. The occasional bossa nova flourishes are lovely, as is the easy-on-the-ear Anna Sheard.” The Guardian

Tracing a line through ‘60s West Coast psychedelia and early ‘70s folk-rock, Anglo-Scottish duo Snowgoose effortlessly transcend their influences. While their debut ‘Harmony Springs’ was largely written by guitarist Jim McCulloch (Soup Dragons, Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan), their 2020 release ‘The Making of You’ sees vocalist Anna Sheard step forward as a lyricist and melodist. The result of this collaboration between the pair is a sonic landscape of rare beauty, one moment intimate, the next utterly exuberant.
