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).
After their own month-long residency at The Echo for Supreme Blue Dream, on bills with acts 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 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, and ethereal pop music.
