Kendl Winter, with her new single Solitude, inhabits a space between Nick Drake and Iris DeMent, with a casual falsetto lift and a pessimist's lyrical abandon. It is a highly fetching folk jalopy, with dueling dust cloud and angel wings, flying down the open road of introspection.
It is at once a melancholic echo of Susanna Hoffs and a nod to the guitar style of Sam Beam. With a strong track like Solitude, we eagerly await the release of Stumbler's Business on Team Love Records, coming July 20th.
From the website:
Kendl Winter grew up in Arkansas, but fell in love with Olympia, Washington even before she moved there after high school.
