Winters Island (Single Launch Show) + Cellars + Demons Of Ruby Mae
Evocative electro pop trio Winters Island proudly present their debut single launch at The Borderline on 21st April.
Their new track ‘Ares’ crafts a sound that is both familiar and unique, mixing
layers of giddy electro pop and indie with dark thrills from noisier
genres. The strength of the lyrics is equally impressive for such a new
band, as lead singer Andy Trimmer proclaims ‘I’m a man that can’t be
Trimmer and his bandmates Sam Thomas and Will Kay formed the band
last March and have enjoyed coveted radio support so far. Dermot
O’Leary praised their song ‘Fire’ as a ‘great track’ before playing it on his
show for BBC Radio 2, whilst a host of Amazing Radio DJs have been
charmed by the trio’s invigorating music, including Simon Raymonde,
Charlie Ashcroft, Shell Zenner and Gill Mills.
The group have played at some of London’s most iconic venues,
including a support slot for Freddie Dickson at KOKO, a headline show
at The Lexington, and a stirring performance at Proud Camden. Shows
around the country are soon to follow for this tight live band, whose
thrilling touring set and exquisite performances are a key part of the
Winters Island philosophy.
While the accompanying lyric video is already incredibly popular, having
amassed over 200,000 views on YouTube and counting, a beautifully
shot official video will accompany the release of ‘Ares’ and is soon to be
revealed. It embraces the full emotional force of the original track while
retaining a playful nature, driven by a fun and entertaining narrative that
lends an entirely new element to the track.
The new single is a valuable addition to the catalogue of a mightily
talented band, a track set to please the fans whose loyalty they already
hold, and win over those encountering the Winters Island sound for the
very first time.
