The students Gary Lightbody and Mark McClelland at the University of Dundee in Dundee, Scotlandoriginally formed the band as "Shrug" in late 1994. The band used to perform gigs at the university and surrounding pubs. In late 1995, the band changed their name to "Polar Bear" (or "Polarbear").
A three-track EP, Starfighter Pilot, was released by them on the Electric Honey label in mid 1997.Richard Colburn played drums on this record and Stuart Murdoch, sang on one of the B-sides. Both of them were from Glaswegian indie band Belle & Sebastian. They became "Snow Patrol" due to legal threats from an American band with the same name (led by Eric Avery, the former bassist of Jane's Addiction).
