Snowball 37 / Press

“This Jersey Shore trio of power-popsters are another find, courtesy of Deirdre Gilmartin’s The Independent Stage radio program and quite a find they are. It may be inappropriate to say “classic power pop”, but damn it, they have it and they have it right. Starting with “Long Dead and Gone”, with its sax fills carrying into tight guitar, bass and drums, you can’t help but automatically appreciate them. The lyrical bite of “The All Star Generation” isn’t to be overlooked, even though it’s neatly wrapped in an upbeat melody; “Baby, You’re A Star” has a retro-glam feel (think T. Rex-ish) and “From The Ebb” has a warmth that reminds me of a Frosting On The Beater-styled outtake, with its slow start and building into a heavier punch. David Fagan is quite the well-schooled songwriter. If there’s one thing I would love to hear from Snowball 37 on their next release is a bigger production; this is a solid debut effort and this band – at least to me – is ”

“Serving up thirteen snappy songs worth of gloriously basic, vibrant, and unpretentious meat and potatoes rock’n’roll, this Jersey City quartet keep things rolling along with a winning blend of energy and simplicity. The vocals are lively and passionate, the arrangements clean, harmonic, and uncluttered, the playing crisp and dynamic, the songwriting concise and to the point. The spirited array of sprightly guitars, steady basslines, and sturdy forward-ho drums ensure that the brisk tempos and constant beats remain hoppin’ from start to finish while the occasional bits of smooth wailin’ saxophone provide some additional soulful kick to the rousing mix. A hugely enjoyable album.”

“Hailing from Point Pleasant Beach, Snowball 37 are a smooth blend of “alterative and power pop rock,” if you can picture that. Their manner kind of takes me back to sounds of ‘90s rock nostalgia that I never get sick of and sometimes wish would be reincarnated. You know, like those albums that you hold close to your heart because they somewhat remind you of your youth, like in my case, Weezer’s Blue Album and Green Day’s Dookie. 16 years later and those 10-12 songs still sound as fresh as they did in 1994. Anyway, I digress. After months of chatting about their recordings, the guys have finally informed me of the release of their full-length record, Declasse, available for purchase on iTunes now! “The All Star Generation” and “Indigo” are two of my personal favorites, but there are 11 more tracks of goodness to be heard. Each song and lyric tells a story, and no story is the same.”

“Snowball 37, Declasse. Snowball 37 are David and Tim Fagan, James Faust, and Brent Clore. Originally hailing from Jersey City, the band now call Point Pleasant home. Declasse displays some Jersey Shore influence right away, opening with the sound of Brent Clore's saxophone on "Long Dead and Gone." From there, the album's 13 tracks move through the sounds of 1990's alternative rock, pop punk, and even classic rock with lyrical references to Neil Young and Kurt Cobain. Declasse is available now at your favorite digital music retailer and on Spotify. It's "Jersey Fresh" and worth a listen.”

“Snowball 37 which is recognized for its melodic music that borders on pop and rock, is eager to add their new album "Declasse", to its repertoire, after much tribulation. The band cites influences as diverse as Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, and The Posies, among others. Their music balances the sensibilities of pop and indie rock while maintaining a rhythmically smooth, and tightly assimilated instrumentation. 5/5”

“To celebrate the release of their new album, "Declasse," New Jersey alternative rock band Snowball 37 will play Maxwell's in Hoboken on Sunday, May 5, 2013. The album, "Declasse," is a mix of classic rock, singer/songwriter and punk rock, with rough grunge guitars and polished saxophone leads. Recorded at Jersey City's Treehouse Studios by Cousin Frank Marra, it will be a game changer in today's pop scene. "I love the sound of loud, distorted guitars, mixed with catchy melodies." says singer/songwriter David Fagan. "I love to play pop music as long as it is on my own terms, which this album is from start to finish." The album's first single "The All Star Generation" is already receiving radio airplay on local college and public radio. "The song is an ironic anthem to the flaws seen in this generation, which are flaws we've all had trying to grow up, and it's wrapped up in a pretty package you can dance to!" says Fagan. ”

“Snowball 37 is a rock, alternative, pop band from the great state of New Jersey. When I first heard this band I was blown away. There is just something that a person can know when they experience a great song, and it is there on "Long Dead and Gone." They have themselves listed as a pop band, but they are more rock, and alternative. Their songs have soaring vocals, with inter playing instrumentals, like the guitar inner weaving with the drums, and the bass driving the song with a nonlinear line. The subjects of the songs are also more than what would be taken on the first listen. This is the band that you like on the first listen, and then love on the second. ”
