SEE: Winter Gardens’ ‘Zigzanny’ is a Bladerunner post-punk fuzzbomb



WINTER GARDENS, the Sussex quartet beloved of a big guitar and unafraid of a grandiose statement, even this early in their career – they covered the Cocteaus’ Pearly Dewdrops-Drops on their first, hard-to-find, 7″ – have dropped a lyric video for a second track from their forthcoming Tapestry EP, which is out next month; you can watch it below. 

In contrast to the harder edged, dramatic dreampop sound of “Tapestry”, the last single, which we reviewed here, “Zigzanny” is an addictive post-punk rush, powering at you on a simple motorik riff and low-slung fuzz.

If you were the replicant Pris from Bladerunner you’d definitely be listening to this on your earbuds as you bounced down the city streets at nightfall.

The band – Ananda Howard, Jamie Windless, Matt Squires and Alex Robinson – say: “This song is simply a fun, energetic fairy tale that centres around a juvenile outlook on love and teenage fantasy.”

If you’re a proper wax addict, have a peek at that limited 180gsm vinyl pressing of the Tapestry EP on the link below. It’s a pretty glorious artefact of white-rimmed purple and its available to pre-order right now at Austerity Records

“Zigzanny” is also available to stream now on Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal.

Keep up with Winter Gardens on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Bandcamp.
