We may be on the cusp of Summer, but The Winter Project are one of the hottest Alt Rock Power Pop collectives I’ve devoured the sound in the past few months.
Their punchy Alternative approach to angular guitar progressions packs their latest single Kismet with so much hype that if you didn’t feel anything as the sonic licks soar through the melodies I’d say you’re pretty much dead inside. The Power Pop riffs carry a dizzying amount of bounce as they clash against the Winter Project’s vocal offering which may be a tad on the nasal side, however that just adds to the ethereally raucous emotion that is poured into my personal favourite track Kismet. Lyrically, you can expect an angsty offering of emotive fury pensively poured into mic under fine dictation.
You can check out the Winter Project’s single Kismet via SoundCloud now, fans of New Found Glory, Yellowcard, Taking Back Sunday and All Time Low, you’re in for a treat with the bands 5-track 2017 EP ‘Salt and Misery’. Prepare for an emotional experience.
