Wintersleep is one of my favourite bands to see perform live. Ever since my friends Dave and Mark introduced me to their (at that time) upcoming album Welcome to the Night Sky, I was hooked. Their songs strike a cord with me that is hard to describe. They’re melodic but easy to rock out to. Their sound is steeped in Alice in Chains grungy angst but with a faster pace. Their epic 10+ minute tracks “Nerves Normal, Breath Normal” and “Miasmal Smoke and the Yellow Bellied Freaks” quite often double in length when the boys are able to really jam out in a live show.
The Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival certainly was a special shooting experience for me this year. I look forward to working with them again in the near future.
