The 5 piece out of
The first single from Welcome to the Night Sky is a catchy tune called "Weighty Ghost", which features vocalist Paul Murphy's questions about death (reminiscent of Jesse Lacey in Brand New's "Jesus Christ"). The album is bookended by its strongest songs; the second track "Archaeologist" and the closer, "Miasmal Smoke & The Yellow Bellied Freaks" are true standouts. Both songs feature brilliant instrumental introductions that get your heart pumping, and then gracefully develop into poetic and vivid stories.
Wintersleep definitely deserve the newfound attention they are receiving. Welcome to the Night Sky is yet another reminder that good music from Maritime Canada doesn’t need to feature a fiddle and lyrics about getting pub-crunk. Well done me’ boys. Well done.mca.
