"A genre tag for genre-less music." -- Vice
"Reinventing the emo genre." -- Alternative Press
"Hyperpop, digicore, SoundCloud pop – call it what you want, but blackwinterwells has been one of its key creative voices." -- The Fader
Canadian musician and producer blackwinterwells shares the official video for "archangel" today via the Helix Tears Collective. The song is from her forthcoming album protector on Eyeball Records. Watch/share "archangel" via YouTube HERE.
It's not uncommon to create labels for sounds and styles of music. Understanding how an album fits into a
"genre" allows listeners to safely navigate an artist’s body of work.
In the case of blackwinterwells, you'd be remiss to go by the previous headlines of "hyperpop" and electronic musical-architecture. This Hamilton, Ontario native shape-shifts the moment you think you have it all figured out.
Following the debut Eyeball release of Crystal Shards, comes protector, an ethereally nuanced collection of tracks wholly engineered and produced by blackwinterwells, and featuring a guest collaboration with 8485 on the track "paper plane." While the album infuses the electronic elements found in previous blackwinterwells releases, these compositions are built with a unique wall-of-sound noise. formed with symphonic song-writing in mind. In a world filled with artists making individual songs to capture the most plays, protector offers a refreshingly patient body of work that sounds best when absorbed as a full album.
protector will be available on CD and download on December 2nd, 2022 via Eyeball Records.
