In pictures: Snow Strippers take over London’s Trance Party

We asked the American based duo to capture the ravey antics at their first-ever London show

It’s 1AM in London’s Canning Town and hundreds of ravers are queuing outside The Cause in anticipation for Snow Strippers’ first-ever UK show at cult club night Trance Party. Hoards of zoomers dressed in archive Rick Owens and Praying wait in anticipation, stashing their bags of powder into platform New Rocks and downing 75ml bottles of Smirnoff before entry through the barriers. The energy inside is unhinged as Snow Strippers take to the stage. The pit is pure madness, packed from floor-to-wall with ravers moshing up against the barriers, which are being held intact by the TP crew and a handful of rather pissed off looking security. Upstairs, more ravers crowd the staircase, cramming their faces through the bars to get a glimpse of the action. Later I overheard someone describe the set as the first time they thought they might actually “die at a club night”. 

Is it worth the hype? Definitely. Since releasing their first two singles in 2021, American based duo Snow Strippers are fast becoming one of the hottest electronic acts to surface in recent years, having worked their way up through the NY indie scene (they’re signed to Surf Gang records, along with the likes of Evilgiane and Eera), eventually catching the attention of Lil Uzi Vert, who featured them on last year’s Pink Tape. They’re spearheading the electroclash and EDM comeback – you’ll find countless articles comparing their ravey sound to early Crystal Castles or Salem – while their effortless aesthetic, synonymous with vape smoke and strobe lights, is the epitome of internet cool.
