A master of ethereal delicacies, Melbourne’s Wintercoats aka James Wallace creates aural artworks of fragility & grandeur.
His new EP Heartful, follows on from 2011’s Sketches EP, which received praise for it’s intricate detail & gorgeous arrangements. Heartful exemplifies his talent for creating profound compositions that appeal to your ears, head + heart.
His work is rich in symbolism; narrations of unwanted & uncontrollable realities, but ideologically hopeful, optimistic + confident, seamlessly weaving violin, glockenspiel, piano & a plethora of other instruments into a glorious yet unmistakably poignant artistic vision.
Truly one of Melbourne’s most talented & promising solo musicians - widely celebrated within the underground community & having supported + toured with the likes of Sarah Blasko, Beach House, How To Dress Well, MONO, Cass McCombs & tUne-yARDS.
Heartful EP is due for release through Yes Please on April 17. As usual, the release will be offered as a ‘name your price’ download through Bandcamp & also available from all good online retailers.
