Event Details

Emerging in fits and starts from 2013, Sounds Like Winter

would go on to blaze a trail of increasing confidence and

originality, bringing a contemporary voice to the classic

post-punk formula. Citing “tight black jeans” and 1982 as

key influences, theirs is a sound firmly entrenched in the

1979-83 era of positive punk, deathrock, dark punk, and

proto goth. Loping bass and scything guitars are ferried

atop a dervish of neo-tribal drums, drawing comparisons to

Joy Division, The Birthday Party, Bauhaus, Christian Death,

Siouxsie and the Banshees, and Sex Gang Children. And yet,

Sounds Like Winter continue to evolve into one of the most

exciting acts in the contemporary post-punk milieu. Where

they have forged their own identity, and one that is

relevant to the present day, is through songs that address

the inherent absurdity of modern life, with a wry smile and

a call-to-arms.
