Los Angeles-based Dream Pop/Shoegaze band Winter released their debut LP Supreme Blue Dream (Lolipop Records) last year followed by a single out on Burger Records in October titled, “All The Things You Do”. During the release of the single, the group embarked on a nationwide tour opening up for Allison Weiss. This brand new video for “Pretender” off of their debut LP is shot and directed by Matt Hogan and is a beautifully shot video capturing their fun antics and adventures from the tour.
Winter is a breezy dose of sultry shoegaze and drippy dream pop whose sound was conceived in Boston. Beginning as a collaborative effort between Samira Winter and Nolan Eley, their first recordings culminated into the 2012 EP entitled Daydreaming. Following the release, Samira’s relocation to Los Angeles brought on the recruit of additional members to create a band that would manifest her ultimate dreams.
The quartet released their first full-length album in cahoots with Los Angeles’ Lolipop Records, earlier this year. The album – made from a coast-to-coast correspondence – features yet again a creative collaboration with Samira Winter (LA) and Nolan Eley (NY). The aptly titled Supreme Blue Dream floats on with a youthful sense of nostalgia and romanticized segues into adulthood. Touching on not one, but two languages (English and Portuguese), this bi-lingual group of dreamers do their part to lay us down softly while keeping listeners eager for each tune.
After their own month-long residency at The Echo for Supreme Blue Dream, and brushing shoulders on bills with acts like Luna, Iceage and Craft Spells, the group made themselves a home in the California scene while honing their distinct, east-coast brand of ethereal vocals layered over melodic guitars.
With Samira Winter at the helm, the live band features the talents of Matt Hogan (guitar), David Yorr (bass), and Garren Orr (drums) – a group whose passionate connection has flourished since the four were students together in Boston. Winter aspires to connect others with their inner child by making blissful, beautiful and ethereal pop music. They add love and positivity to the world as well as being positive role models for both boys and girls; especially those who are just starting to form their own musical opinions. Winter continues to tour the world and spread beauty and magic to people everywhere.
Supreme Blue Dream is available on CD/cassette/vinyl now via Lolipop Records and will be playing with Summer Twins, Dante Elephante, and The Dream Ride at The Echo in Los Angeles on Thursday, January 28th.
