Why do we like this?
Winter People don't do things the regular way, and their intriguing, hand-crafted music shows this. A six-piece band from Sydney, this veritable troop of musicians boasts five vocalists and two violin players. Each of their songs feel lovingly created, a welcome change in a world where music is manufactured without a second thought.

Winter People's debut album is due mid-2012, some three years after their EP The Dog Years was completed. Having already released the album's first single, the beautifully poignant "Wishing Bone," the next step is their new track "Gallons." A truly powerful and moving song, "Gallons" is the perfect platform for the band to launch their album.

A gentle opening quickly transforms into a thundering, boisterous offering with a constant bass drum the track's heartbeat. Lead Dylan Baskind has an incredibly enticing voice, similar to that of the National's baritone Matt Berninger. In fact, this track has those evocative and moving tones that the National have made their own. The echoing violin and soft backing vocals provide the perfect completion to an altogether excellent track.

Having been around for some time though, I find it strange that Winter People are yet to have received the accolades they clearly deserve. That seems likely to change, very soon.
