With influences diverse: Beck, the Beatles, Wilco, Pink Floyd, My Morning Jacket, and even DC post-punk, Win Win Winter is clearly a band with a bright and promising future.Â The true test is how a band pulls these influences together and creates something that rises above.Â Something new.Â Something fresh.Â Something that doesn't just fade into the background as soon as it's done.Â The five songs they've chosen for this EP document that Win Win Winter have admirably succeeded where countless others have failed.Â The proof's all there in the EP.Â Only five songs but what an impact they'll have once you give a listen. "Baker Ave." starts it off with a bouncy blues riff that immediately grabs your attention and holds it. "We Came From Stereos" takes things down a notch into pop/rock territory. The magnum opus of "Brief History," though, is the devastating and haunting "Doves & Uppercuts." It's a song about a family dealing with the tragic loss of one of their young sons.
