Sniper Nose is an experimental / guitar / ambient outfit (Cola Kid & Nicky Mecks) based in Melbourne, Australia. Formed in 2014, they released their debut EP ‘New Cold War’ later year.
New Cold War is a synthetic, visionary travelogue which sets a soundscape to a fictionalised autobiography. Each track corresponds to a video.
