Winter Gypsy EP Launch**LIVE INDIE FOLK** [THURSDAY – 08.09.2016]
The Winter Gypsy will be hitting the road to celebrate the release of Page I, heading up the east coast of the country in August/September.
THE WINTER GYPSY //
The Winter Gypsy are a six-piece indie folk group from Adelaide, South Australia. Forming as a collusion of four separate bands in August, 2015, the band ranges from soft folk melodies and haunting vocal harmonies to soaring, upbeat instrumentals. The band has a complex dichotomy of both ambient and driving, distorted solos. Drawing comparisons to The Middle East, Bon Iver, and Bombay Bicycle Club, their sound is complemented by an intense and intricate range of instruments.
Supporting the likes of Little May, Ziggy Alberts, Tash Sultana, High Highs, Tully on Tully, Drawing North and the Meeting Tree, the band’s loyal fan-base has resulted in several sold out headline shows. Debut single ‘People’ was featured on the popular Portuguese based YouTube Channel “Mostly Strings” and attracted over one hundred thousand views and an overwhelming positive response among an international audience. With a regular rotation on Triple J Unearthed and several features on Roots and All hosted by Sarah Howells; there is a lot of hype growing around the new band.
“The Winter Gypsy opened the evening with a collection of soothing indie tracks that filtered between folk and pop. Apart from obvious comparisons to the sadly departed The Middle East and Bon Iver, singer/guitarist, Tushar Singh showed off his well-pitched breathy vocals that sometimes ventured into the crooning territory of a smoothed King Krule.” – YEWTH Mag.
The band’s first six-track EP, “Page I” is set for release in August of 2016, with a single release in July.
Progressive soul outfit from Sydney.
Hailing from Sydney, eclectic progressive soul five piece Levingstone is a band blurring boundaries. Inspired by a wide breadth of influences, their real sound comes from the fusion of personalities within the group.
Pulling colours from jazz, neo soul, rock and progressive pop, Levingstone paints a picture that is all their own – each song a landscape richly inhabited by their unique brand of storytelling.
After releasing singles “One Up” and “Roadside” in late 2015, along with two east-coast tours, the band received praises from taste-makers such as Tone Deaf and Flavourmag (UK), and support from Triple J Unearthed, community radio and blogs across the globe.
The band’s most recent release, their debut EP Modern Burials and lead track “First Taste” have garnered the band even more support – the single was added to rotation on Triple J Unearthed, as well as receiving airplay on Sydney’s FBi, The Edge and 2SER, Melbourne’s Triple RRR, and numerous other community stations, as well as favourable reviews from The Music, Happy and Tone Deaf among others.
