Irish punk rockers The Winter Passing have released the first single from their upcoming EP.
The track ‘Significance’ displays a new side of the band as they enter into 2017 with high expectations.
Over the past year, the band have toured with Modern Baseball, Moose Blood, Touché Amore, Gnarwolves and more, and slot nicely into the same brand of gritty emo, hiding lyrics that deal unflinchingly with mental health and anxiety as lyrical topics under sugary hooks.
Speaking to DIY Mag, guitarist and vocalist Rob Flynn said: ”This record is a lot more personal than any of our previous work.
“The songs touch on mental health and well-being themes, a central point being the anxiety caused by stability and instability in your life and dealing with your ability to ‘be ok’.
“This time the writing is more personal to each of us individually, and from a new stand-point in each other’s lives in comparison to ‘A Different Space of Mind’.”
The new EP ‘Double Exposure’ comes out on 21st April via Big Scary Monsters and 6131 Records.
