Windingsnew single and album release date announced

What you may need to know…

01. Last time we stopped in with Windings, they’d just released the first single from their upcoming album.

02. The band’s leanings toward a more foreboding mood continue with You’re Dead, albeit taking a step back from the madness unleashed by previous single Helicopters.

03. Streaming above is the accompanying video clip, produced by Stephen Boland.

04. Full-length Be Honest and Fear Not has just been announced for a September 30th release via Out on a Limb Records. A launch tour is to be announced shortly to accompany same.

VERDICT: Soaked in keyboards and chorus pedal, You’re Dead scares up tension and uneasy memories with the most unlikely tools. A journey hopefully extended by the new long-player.

windingsnew music en route

What you may need to know…

01. Limerick five-piece windings have outlived and outlasted their DIY forebears and become a staple of Irish independent music.

02. Emerging from the ashes of beloved hardcore duo giveamanakick, they’ve since trod the boards with Daniel Johnston, Smog/Bill Callahan, Bob Mould, Okkervil River, Caribou, Iron And Wine, Villagers, Teenage Fanclub, Kurt Vile, and Modest Mouse on their way to releasing three full-lengths and multiple singles.

03. Streaming above is the band’s most recent release, digital single Stray Dogs/Helicopters. Production on the B-side from Limrock noise-hop luminary Naive Ted.

04. New album Be Honest and Fear Not is on the way, and the band’s label is clearing house to make room. Long-running Shannonside label Out on a Limb currently have a summer sale on, with 25% off everything with discount code OOALSALE. Music on CD, vinyl and tape, including Rest, Owensie, Shardborne, and reissues from giveamanakick and Tooth.

Verdict: A hint at a more foreboding, eclectic direction for the veteran alternative outfit.
