WINTER – ” What Kind of Blue Are You? “

Posted: August 11, 2022 in MUSIC

Dream shoegazer Winter (aka Samara Winter) has announced a new LP, “What Kind of Blue Are You?”, due October 14th via Bar/None Records. (It’s her first since 2020’s Endless Space.) The album was recorded and produced by Winter herself in collaboration with producer Joo Joo Ashworth at Studio 22 in Los Angeles, of which she says, “I felt like I was making music in a dark cave with an old friend and no one else existed.” She continues, “I feel like I’ve come full circle, making an album that my 22-year-old self who just started Winter would love. It’s my inner shadow girl, revealing herself in all her brokenness, despair and beauty.”

Winter has also shared new single “Atonement.” It’s infectiously cool and slightly grungy, with an awesome feature by Hatchie Harriette Pilbeam and Joe Agius. “Every time I hear this song a new version of the story plays out in my head – an escape, a mystery, a forbidden love,” Winter Says. “By the time it reaches full climax there is a big reveal – the secret is out, the we discover who committed the crime, the two lovers find each other.” Check out the retro, Matrix-looking music video for “atonement” below, plus the artwork and tracklist for “What Kind of Blue Are You?”.

Winter are to join Hatchie as a bandmate and opening act on a tour of Australia, and she’ll play a host of just-announced North American dates with Peel Dream Magazine
