Double Winter – ‘Watching Eye’ C27 $5
doublewinterOn Watching Eye, Detroit-based Double Winter are sharpened to tight, sonic, precision. Their sound is Holly Johnson’s expressive basslines and cooly detached vocals, Vittorio Vettraino’s inexhaustible supply of inspiring guitar, Augusta Morrison’s ear for harmonic coloring via violin and Morgan McPeak’s bouncing rock syncopations. Double Winter’s artistry seems to leave its members somewhat free in their aural space, yet they play with synergy. On “XO, Skeleton” Audiofemme writes: “Doesn’t overthink and in doing so delivers a sweetly melancholic, hair-twirling, window-watching serenade.” Playground Detroit writes: “With about a minute left, Double Winter takes the track double time, illustrating the duality of the song and overall versatility of the quirky quad.” From dreamy ballad vibes in “Jazz Dancer” to the goth punk snarls of “Blood Candy,” Watching Eye captures the energy of Double Winter’s live gigs, and showcases their memorable song-craft.
