As Heard on TV
By now you may well have come across a merry, little Starbucks commercial set in an urban park, where kites shaped like snowflakes dot the sky. The soundtrack to the spot comes from the indie-pop band matt pond PA.
“Snow Day” is the opening track from the group’s 2005 EP Winter Songs, a collection of seven originals and covers inspired by those days when the sun sets early and the sweaters come out. It’s a lovely, cozy set well worth checking out, particularly if you’ve fallen under the spell of those mesmerizing kites in the commercial.
