Winter Villains – House of Knives

Winter Villains are everything I liked about Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci and nothing like the bits I didn’t. In essence there are in the upper echelons of the new bands that have stolen my heart this year. Chances are this state of affairs will be repeated in the years that supersede the current one, for 5 songs into their output I can’t for the life of me find a weakness in their hushed pop formula. The latest batch of tunes were recorded recently in Music Box Studios in Cardiff and in keeping with their name attain a degree of what falling snow must sound like. Yeah, it’s only July but ‘House of Knives’ has us wishing it were 15 degrees cooler outside and all we have for warmth is the glow from a phonograph. For Winter Villains belong on vinyl, only then will their genuine craft emerge from a plume of December morning fog. KD
