"‘Castles In The Snow' is about my deep and endless love for music, and the chase and heartbreak that it often brings. It is my most passionate lover and my most poisonous relationship of them all."

By Vanessa B

Singer-songwriter Lara Snow presents the electro-pop anthem ‘Castles In The Snow’, recorded in London with Miedo Total and longtime collaborator Jonatan Harpa. Concluding her ‘Delete Forever’ Era, the track explores the artist’s complicated relationship with music, as Lara explains:

“[it’s] about my deep and endless love for music, and the chase and heartbreak that it often brings. It is my most passionate lover and my most poisonous relationship of them all.”

Celebrating the release, Lara shares with us a playlist of her top 5 musical influences. Check them out, along with Castles In The Snow, below.

This Mortal Coil – Song To The Siren

I fell in love with this version of the song for the first time a few years back. I was in the desert with some friends, It was a magical starry night. This song came on, and I felt like it put a spell on me. I’ve been under this spell ever since.

Lana Del Rey – Venice Bitch

There aren’t many songs that can take you on a spiritual journey like this song does.

The Kills – The Last Goodbye

I love Alison Mosshart. She is such a great songwriter, vocalist, and performer. This song specifically is such a beautiful, fragile gem. It is so honest and so pure.

Chris Isaak – Wicked Game 

If there is a song that I wish I would have written it is definitely this one. I connect to the lyrics on such a deep level. 

Joni Mitchell – A Case Of You

Joni Mitchell writes the kind of songs that make you wish you were there when it happened. She can really tell a story and make you imagine a place, a time, a feeling.
