Another duo to pay some attention to, among many potent ones around right now is Winter 1982, a British folk/indie pairing from Birmingham who, on the evidence of new single Worry, have the knack of uniting soulful melodies and emotions with ear catching yet haunting adventure.
Made up of vocalist/guitarist Phil Barber and pianist/bassist Luke Phillips, Winter 1982 released the Ghosts EP last year, its presence going some way to luring subsequent support from the likes of Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing. It is Worry now doing the enticing on new ears and spotlights with a suspected similar success awaiting it, such the persuasion of its melancholic yet uplifting character and melodic beauty.
Initially, the keys of Phillips hug the emotive tones of Barber, echoing his melancholic sentiment before guitar and bass bring their more intense flames to the quickly blossoming landscape. Equally swinging beats add new textures and energy too, crafting an instinctive catchiness which becomes a constant presence even in the moments where the song returns to its solemn elegance in tone and gait.
It is a captivating affair and increasingly so with every listen; Worry making a highly persuasive argument for keeping a close ear on Winter 1982, something a great many more will surely be doing from hereon in.
