ABOUT NORTH FOR THE WINTERNorth for the Winter are songs about the end of the world, artistic violence, love, loss and shiny things explored through the abuse of a handful of guitars, violins, harmonies and drums. Likened to local legends Hundred Reasons and Hell Is For Heros, North For The Winter are 3 twenty-something university drop-outs looking for a new singer.
"Dark and brooding when required, they play with passion and conviction throughout. A band most effective when going for the skyscraping half-time breakdown, on the whole they are a well-honed Britrock machine." - Chris Carter, Warwick University Entertainments Administrator
"Intelligent yet poppy, abrasive, delicate and eccentric." - Basingstoke Gazette Newspaper
"Not just joining the rock scene, but truly going about finding their place, this band care about their music; this shows in their performance and dedication to their art. North For The Winter are a band who want to be able to say that they came and made their mark."
