Artist: Snow Patrol
Title: A Hundred Million Suns
Label: Polydor
Year: 2008
Designer: Unstated
Type of music: Indie
Notes: The possibility that I would be doing a post about Snow Patrol here on Hard Format had never crossed my mind – they’re just not my kind of music. However, the About page we wrote at the start of this website ended with “Oh and who knows, perhaps at some point in the future we may even need to set up a parallel site to celebrate brilliant virtual design…” and this iPhone app is an interesting glimpse of the possibilities of new media.



Ultimately, this is a toy (it is free after all), but there’s no reason why another group shouldn’t go all the way by releasing a paid-for album, single or EP in this format. Rune Grammofon, Spekk, Warp, Ghost Box, Raster Noton? All of you, c’mon – what are you waiting for?

PS, at time of writing there’s one other iPhone app like this one – it’s by Pink. Though less interactive, it does provide 30 second music previews, the ability to buy tracks, pictures, news, discography and biography.

Link: download Snow Patrol app from the iTunes Music Store.


  1. I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else
    experiencing issues with your blog. It appears as if some of the text on your posts are
    running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me
    know if this is happening to them too? This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

  4. Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog
    shine. Please let me know where you got your design.

  6. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?

    A couple of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but
    looks great in Opera. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?
