Starting with their self-titled debut in 2005, Winterpills have built a vibrant career with their exquisite chamber-pop songs that The Washington Post called “densely packed but hugely evocative, tiny bombs of feeling and meaning… fiendishly melodic”, attracting fans from their native New England to the Netherlands and beyond.
They may be one of the most exciting bands to emerge in recent years, adding another chapter to the ever-expanding world of ethereal indie-pop. They play haunting, delicate, dynamic, room-hushingly beautiful music with shimmering melodies and aching lyrics. Fronted by singers Philip Price and Flora Reed, they harmonize closely, often and gorgeously.
The group has released 5 records to critical acclaim and have grown into “a band that is only becoming more essential” (The Hartford Courant). Their latest album, All My Lovely Goners, was released on February 14th, 2012.
In addition to touring, Winterpills’ music has been used in numerous television shows including the hit ABC show Grey’s Anatomy, NBC’s Parenthood and the U.K. series Skins. They have shared the stage with such notable and diverse artists as Vampire Weekend, CAKE, Grant-Lee Phillips, St. Vincent, Lisa Germano, Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion, Juana Molina, Crowded House, Fountains of Wayne, Martha Wainwright, and The Mountain Goats. Winterpills are: Philip Price: vocal, guitar, keyboard , Flora Reed: vocal, keyboard, Dennis Crommett: guitar, vocal , Brian akey: bass , Dave Hower: drums, shaken things
Also playing…Darlingside! Opening for Winterpills is the New England based string-rock quartet, Darlingside, who have forged a seamless, exhilarating sound at the intersection of rock, classical, and folk music. With five songwriters, a mandolin, a cello and violin, guitars, drums, and a chorus of voices, this dynamic group is shaking rafters along the eastern seaboard with their vibrant live shows.
