WINTER AID ANNOUNCES NEW album - shares new song 'the night is an ocean'

We are delighted to announce the new album from Winter Aid. 'The Murmur of the Land' releases on April 28th. 

The first cut from the album is a new single, The Night is an Ocean, Winter Aid's first major release since 2013’s slow-burner online hit The Wisp Sings (which has garnered 8 million streams and counting). A delicate rumination on sadness and solace, the song hints at a gentle progression from simple song-craft to more intense sounds - a change in full force on upcoming debut The Murmur of the Land.

Produced by Darragh Nolan (Sacred Animals), the song blends the delicate melodies of earlier material with a newfound confidence, hinting at the expansiveness of the new album. The video was directed by Aneel Neupane of Kathmandu’s Jazz Productions, and was filmed in the stunning wilds of Gosaikunda in Nepal, its storyline perfectly matching the song in imagination and emotion.

Ambience Affair are delighted to announce their long-awaited return with their new single 'Prophet'. It is their first release since their critically acclaimed debut album 'Burials' and is taken from their forthcoming album, due out later this year. Co-produced by Brent Knopf (Ramona Falls / Ex-Menomena), the song sees the band take bold new steps with their sound, whilst retaining their original core elements.

To celebrate this, they'll play an intimate show in Bello Bar, Dublin on April 10th (TICKETS), 2015 and Coughlan's Cork on April 17th.
