In today's music world it is getting harder to find a band that takes an honest original approach to rock n roll. It seems like it is been a while since a new band has come along with music really worth getting excited about. The four unknown Midwestern transplants that form Wintergreen are working to change that. Writing complex quality pop songs void of gimmicks and clichés, their sound is a balance of high energy and melancholy atmosphere. Wintergreen teamed up with producer/mixer Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Keith Richards, My Morning Jacket, Fiona Apple) to put the final touches on their debut EP. With their first release, Wintergreen showcase refreshingly elaborate guitar work, catchy vocal melodies, and strong rhythmic backbone. Creating a heartfelt sound that is truly timeless, original yet subtly familiar, every note is played with a precise passion that shakes listeners to the core. Hard working and humble, the taste and talent demonstrated by LA's Wintergreen is giving people reasons to remain in love with music. Give it one listen and you'll be hooked.
