“Snow” is an old track, but I still can’t get enough of it. If the end of the universe was approaching and humanity had to choose one track to describe the feeling of falling into nothingness, I wouldn’t be surprised if this one made the cut.

An undercurrent of bleakness runs through the track, but the song’s soft guitar work surrounds you with warmth, soothing you into accepting your mistakes.

The idea of losing your way might be sad, but for those who’ve become entirely unconcerned about their failures it makes more sense to just let go.

“Snow” is just the right mixture of enchantment and melancholy to lull humanity into the void. While we continue to exist, however, there’s nothing wrong with letting the track sing you into a sense of peace.
