Windings – 14th April 2012


The lovely windings are making a return visit to the Pine Lodge on their Single Launch Tour. windings are Steve Ryan (giveamanakick), Liam Marley, Aaron Mulhall, Patrick O’ Brien and Mike Gavin and we last saw them in June 2011 when they lifted the roof of the lodge.

“The Space I Occupy/ The Hassle” is their new double A-sided 7” Single on Out On A Limb Records. This new release shows two very different sides of the always eclectic windings, one part paranoid cowbell boppin’ rant, and the other, an existential lament complete with kids’ choir. Both songs show the band flexing their musical muscles in ways they have perhaps refrained from thus far.

The past year has seen windings tour, flux, and morph into some kind of well oiled 5 man music machine! After touring their second album “It’s Never Night” throughout last year, playing with the likes of Teenage Fanclub, The Cranberries, and Modest Mouse, and taking in such places as New York, Toronto and Mullingar, they released the poptastic single “Embury Greenway” in the summer of 2011. Then they toured some more, and promptly hit the the studio to record what would become their next two singles.

Both songs have become live favourites, “The Hassle” an infectious aggro pop number, heavy on the cowbell, with lashings of squalling guitars beamed in from somewhere in the mid-90’s, and “The Space I Occupy”, an equally infectious, but less rabid, slice of dreamy folk pop, featuring special guests in the form of Ms Geary’s 5th Class Singers.

windings have just launched a Fundit campaign to raise funds for the recording of their new album, by Efrim Menuck (Godspeed You! Black Emperor) in Hotel2Tango Studios, Montreal in March.
