The Winter Sounds / Press

“The Winter Sounds turn blissful melodies into shooting stars of soaring pop”

“Fiercely melodic indie rock that doesn't shortchange listeners on layers of substance or instrumentation.”

Alarm Magazine

“...the sound of all seasons, evoking every shimmering, driving, melodic and melancholic cornerstone of the last two decades of indie rock..”

Heeb Magazine

“Though favorable and flattering comparisons to Ride and other blue Brits are inevitable, these synthy, shoegazing Southerners put another feather in Athens, Georgia's indie-rock cap with startlingly sincere songwriting and the occasional foot-frenzy dance beat.”


“With their dizzying array of musical instruments, including everything from your basic drums and guitar to vox and orchestra bells, the Winter Sounds provide an enchanting soundtrack that, similar to the album's artwork, feels like a dark, cold night at sea.”

Performer Magazine

“They are a fusion of The Arcade Fire, Cass McCombs, and British Sea Power, with a dash of punk and choirboy-rock harmonies, giving them enough Indie cred to suit a converse loving, tight jean wearing hipster-kid”

Minute Morning Magazine

“The Winter Sounds' heart is in the right place, and that's all that matters. Well, that and its songwriting is in the right place, too. While we're bound to see a flood of indie wannabes flooding the market in hopes of riding on Modest Mouse's coattails, don't count The Winter Sounds among them.”


“They sound like the '80s, but like all of the '80s: not only de rigueur electro-pop and new wave, but also hardcore, post-punk, hip hop and New Romantic.”

Flagpole Magazine

“The talent and passion that The Winter Sounds showcase on their auspicious debut is unmatched by other seemingly hip poseurs. If youre a forthright and unashamed fan of pop melody like I am then The Winter Sounds will push their way through the clutter and make you love them.”


“There's nothing cookie cutter about their smoothly transitioning music, into which they skillfully shape bits of new wave, punk, the best of 80s music, and tidbits of post-punk and pop. Out of this mish-mash of styles, they've unexpectedly defined themselves.”
