Six pack sensation The Winter Gypsy have just announced the release of their toe-tappin' new single Took Me By as a teaser for their debut EP, Page I, which is set to hit our ear buds this August.
The celestial tones of the lead singer Tushar Singh will lull you into a sleepy state and wrap you up in deliciously reverberous and subtle electric guitar riffs. You'll be as snug as a bug in a rug with these dudes by your side.
“The song itself is also about the uncertainty and fragility of situations that are out of your control. Despite the minimal lyrics, the song resonates this message through the specific choice of words," Singh said.
“I wrote this song about a period of time wherein my mum was battling cancer - I felt helpless because there was nothing I could do to make her better. I wanted to portray that thought into having a visual of someone restrained and 'crying out for help,' but having everyone run past me through the tunnel because there's nothing they can do to help me. I also wanted to place these random ideas into the video so that other people can depict their own story. Is everyone running away from a train? Do I get hit by a train at the end? Where did the live chicken come from? Who knows.”
The indie-folksters will be touring their vocals around the country, starting in Melbourne (28 August),and moving through Adelaide, Sydney and Canberra, before returning to Adelaide for another home town show to end the tour at The Exeter onSeptember 17.
“We love performing live and fans can definitely expect a lot more energy compared to what they might usually hear on our EP or other recordings. There is a much greater build-up to either the intro or outro of our songs which really creates a fuller sound. We feel as a band that not only do we enjoy jamming these instrumentals, but it really pulls our audience together and draws them in for each song that we play.”
Indie folksters The Winter Gypsy have today announced their soaring new single and video for Took Me By (out July 8), the first taste of the band’s debut EP, Page I which is set for release on August 5. To celebrate their new tunes, the Adelaide six-piece will be heading out on the road in August, kicking off in Melbourne on August 28.
