Take one Brit-born indie songwriter: Carina Round. Add Canadian root/folk tunesmith Justin Rutledge. Blend together well with the studio backing of musician Zac Rae and producer / instrumentalist Dan Burns and you get a cool, bracing musical elixir known as Early Winters. We noted earlier that their new eponymous sophomore album has an "appealingly weightless feel" with Round and Rutledge evoking a "harmonious vibe" on songs that "tie together sumptuous dream pop, Hotel Cafe melodies and vintage Laurel Canyon folk/rock." Today we're serve up a fine acoustic version of the band's new single "Walking Through Fire" via the "one mic" video performance below as well as an exclusive free download of the track: just click through below. If you're within driving distance of New York City, check out Early Winters at Rockwood Music Hall this Wednesday night. Info and tickets here.
