Winter - New Music "Introducing"

I'm currently getting wet in Brighton and this is the last of my pre-writes so hopefully you have a great weekend and I'll be back with a review of The Great Escape when I'm recovered next week.. The new music discoveries never stop though and today I write about Winter, a dream pop/shoegaze band from Boston led by Samira Winter, they released their first EP "Daydreaming" last December...

The four track release introduces a sound that combines a blissed-out Best Coast jangle pop sound with shimmering guitar textures and soft, dreamy vocals - basically a melting pot of everything I (and so many people) have become to love over the last four or five years.

"Daydreaming" lets you do just as the title suggests with spacey, airy vocals beautifully floating over glacial soundscapes and catchy guitars whilst the chorus will embed itself in your brain. "Bedroom Philosophies" is where the Crazy For You comparisons are most apparent, swathed in reverb and punctured drums guide honey-dripping surf pop that echoes, jangles and brings thoughts of lazy summer days effortlessly to mind. It's poppy, it's sugary sweet and it's infinitely charming.

"Nothing" is the track that most recalls the quartet's name, soft, dreamy and super-chill - luscious I think it's called. Daydreaming is available now via Bandcamp on limited CD / digital download.
