Sounds Like Winter
Sounds like Winter's sound is written in their name, a cold soundtrack for the disaffected, a sound crafted from a love of post punk and 80's dark wave synth bands. Sounds Like Winter are that strange kid that sat in the corner at school and dreamt of better days. Isolation, despair and hope are covered in the subject matter, all the while seducing you with bass heavy, ice-cold grooves and razor like guitar licks. Let them take you to another place. This Sydney songwriting project and five piece live band have enjoyed rapidly increasing interest by local and overseas alternative DJ's. 2014 saw them debut their live show, blowing audiences away with quality original songs, big sound, and stunning visuals. SLW have a number of live shows planned in Sydney and interstate over the rest of 2015.
