The Canadian synth-wave duo W I N C H E S T E R released the single Last Day Of The Year yesterday.
Drifting elegantly into the room Last Day Of The Year (available on bandcamp) fuses electronics and instrumentation in washes of ambient colours, while burbling percussion gives the track a sense of destiny. Vocals switch between soft brushes and more defined strokes, in similar fashion to the manner in which the track builds as W I N C H E S T E R through the just over four and a sixth minutes of track fill in the scaffolding giving the listener they are listening to an aural descriptor of an image being painted on canvas.
Fortuitously, the track title makes perfect sense to me – as today is my birthday – so somehow appositely – yesterday the 11th was, for me, in some ways the The Last Day Of The Year.
