Winters Island – Ares

Their debut single Ares, crafts a sound that is both familiar and unique, mixing layers of electro pop and indie with dark thrills from noisier genres. The journey since their launch in March 2014 has been packed full of surprises especially the interest shown by some of the industry’s heavyweights; Dermot O’Leary broadcast ‘Fire’ during his BBC show “a great track, very different I can’t wait to hear what you think” and Gill Mills on Amazing Radio, “I for one wouldn’t mind having a trek around Winters Island”. A growing list of blogs have also been quick to put keyboard to screen, ‘all we can decipher is that they are three human beings who make some of the most interesting and invigorating music we’ve heard for a long time’ – BandXBass. With summer festival appearances at Brownstock and Kendall Calling under their belts, a debut EP on the horizon and shows scheduled all over the country Winters Island have a busy year ahead.

Winters Island - Ares

Winters Island managed to perfectly execute the blend of a full on commercial Dance track with that of a full on indie pop track. There are times where I’m thinking The Wombats and then I’m thinking Calvin Harris – neither the kind you’d put together aside from a remix perhaps, yet, somehow, Winters Island have hit the nail on the head with this concoction. This track, Ares, is due for release on April 6th.

Winters Island – Ares Lyrics:
Well I wrote you a song
But you say you want a symphony
And I will take the light through the time
And the blades that break my soul
But then sadicity aside
And I’m not without you next to me
I will take the front to the line
And bring back the night before

Light the fire
Let it burn on top of you
Breathe again beneath the flames
I’m a man that can’t be saved
Light the fire
Let it burn on top of you
Breathe again beneath the flames
I’m a man, I’m a man,
I’m a man that can’t be saved

Maybe I was wrong
And perhaps you needed more from me
I can’t stand to fight all the time
But I can’t seem to take the fall
Electricity aside
This is more than just a life for me
I can put our time on the line
And bring back the night before

Light the fire
Let it burn on top of you
Breathe again beneath the flames
I’m a man that can’t be saved
Light the fire
Let it burn on top of you
Breathe again beneath the flames
I’m a man, I’m a man,
I’m a man that can’t be saved

Ares, Ares, Ares, Ares
Tear me down
See the man that I am now
From the flames, Ares
