The power of a Winter song is hard to describe, like how the delicate world building of a good book can be more compelling than real life.
There's a make-believe, fairy tale surrealism that sets Winter's blend of dream pop and psychedelia apart while existing in the same universe as the ethereal dream pop of Cocteau Twins and Melody's Echo Chamber.
Samira Winter grew up in Curitiba, Brazil, where her Brazilian mother filled their home with the gentle melodies of MPB (música popular brasileira), and her father introduced her to the distorted sounds of American punk. At 18, she moved to the US to study at Boston's Emerson College, where she first released music as Winter during her senior year. She eventually moved the band to LA's Echo Park, quickly building a cult following with a stream of bilingual releases and national tours supporting BRONCHO and Cherry Glazerr, not to mention international dates in Mexico, South America and Europe.
