Tracklist: Wintercoats - Spend This Day

James Wallace, who is Wintercoats, understands that given the sonic space of the recording studio it's imperative to find the difference between filling every last track on the console/screen and doing something with the smallest details. Beginning as a glacial lament, it's the bits that emerge in between - glockenspiel melodies, marching drums, looped calls in the distance - that make the song as much as the burbling below and the airy multitracked vocal above, eventually finding its epilogue in piano and the peace of the morning light. As well as this track there's a Wintercoats EP for free download, Cathedral.
