Part song, part experimental tech-art piece, Toronto’s cinematic indie-pop/rock duo W I N C H E S T E R reveal their second single I'm Not Ready to Go Yet, taken from their forthcoming EP, “If Time is Not Linear Why Can’t I Forget the Past?”. The high-tech visual and audio experience is the product of the unbridled collision of the pair’s backgrounds in architecture, classical music, coding, visual art, DJing, and design. Together, Canadian artists Lauren Austin and Montgomery de Luna forge an atmospheric sonic palette brought to life by an equally hybrid video art piece that blurs the line between computation, projection mapping, photography, and still life.
A refreshing, genre-bending composition of cinematic swoons, pop hooks, luscious synths, and surreal guitars, songs from the W I N C H E S T E R debut have been described as, “epic tracks” by Velvet Rope Magazine’s editor Care Finch, stating, “this is certainly a band that I can get into”. Despite only releasing their first single in October of 2016, the song has already been picked up by the Hype Machine, IX Daily, Pan od Muzyki, Le Canal Auditif, Aimless Skylarking, Indiemono, and Indie Bands Blog. Their informal demos have previously garnered the attention of Velvet Rope, the Indie Rock Playlist, ongeKunsteld, 88.3 CJIQ’s Indie Rock Invasion Show, Bells Brigade, Coast2Coast Mixtapes, Music of the North, and 89.5 CIUT’s Unsigned Radio.
Fully self-produced in domestic secrecy, I'm Not Ready to Go Yet is the second in a series of art pieces to be released later this year through Label Labs Records, an emerging grassroots recording club based out of Toronto. With each release the group will carve out another piece of the W I N C H E S T E R universe, methodically developing the visual companion to each song. This combination of sonic and visual elements as one integrated work advances the duo’s vision of a holistic concept realized through multiple media which will define their place in the music scene.
No more fear, it’s all said and done
Just watch as they fall, watch what we’ve begun
In the night, they watch as you sleep—
You opened the door, and they want you to keep
One small tear, watch as it falls.
Hung glass in the air, you care nothing at all
No more words, there’s nothing to prove.
Oh how could I choose? Oh what could I do?
What could I do…..
