Winterstate - Start of Something (S.O.S.)

WINTERSTATE is led by singer-songwriter Kelvin Killmon (Seattle, WA) and multi-instrumentalist Alex Ortberg (Rochester, MN). The two have continued to write and record new songs together, drawing inspiration from upbeat bands like The Killers, Mae, Anberlin, Incubus, and Foo Fighters. They first met as students at the Berklee College of Music campus in Valencia, Spain.

The band's music is built on Alex's clean, multi-layered compositional style and tight, driving rhythms. Rich vocal harmonies and anthemic melodies are added to the mix by Kelvin. His perceptive lyrics cover various subjects, from celebrating life in the face of chronic illness to small-town love affairs.

On February 18th, 2023, WINTERSTATE released their brand-new 5-song EP, SAILORS AND SIRENS. This is the last song on the EP, Start of Something (S.O.S.). I love the epic intro and the melodic vocals (the chorus is amazing). The arrangement is spot on as well as the production, supporting a fantastic performance by the band. Quality song, I totally recommend it. Give it a go by clicking on the Spotify player below and remember to follow WINTERSTATE on social media.
