Irish indie punk group THE WINTER PASSING are streaming their upcoming debut LP A Different Space of Mind in conjunction with UK label FITA Records. The band will tour the US this fall with 6131 labelmates TEEN DEATH including an appearance at Gainesville’s The Fest (dates below).
Formed in 2012, The Winter Passing stemmed from the vital Dublin DIY scene. The band has spent the past three years touring the UK and Ireland multiple times and releasing a handful of 7″s on various labels. At the heart of the group is brother and sister pair Rob and Kate Flynn, who have been playing music together since they were 14 and 12, respectively. Growing up together the two shared a love of bands such as Get Up Kids, The Anniversary, The Replacements, and Sonic Youth, the influences of which are strongly suggested in their songs. “A Different Space of Mind is a record about survival, about saving yourself from yourself and the realization of the world around you,” explains Rob of the forthcoming album. It was recorded with Bob Cooper (Nai Harvest) in Manchester, England and with Aiden Cunningham in Tullymore, Ireland, who also mixed and mastered A Different Space of Mind.
