London-based three-piece Winters Island return with an inspired cover of a 90s classic, with strong hooks, a distinctive groove and impressive harmonies evident throughout. ‘Don’t Let Go (Love)’ is unveiled ahead of the band’s forthcoming evocative single ‘Ares’ on 6th April.
The original track, an R&B classic, peaked at No. 2 on the US Billboard, spent 13 weeks in the UK top 40, and was voted as one of the 150 best tracks to be released during the first 15 years of NME’s lifetime.
Andy Trimmer, Sam Thomas and Will Kay formed Winters Island last March and have enjoyed coveted radio support so far. Dermot O’Leary praised their song ‘Fire’ as a ‘great track’ before playing it on his show for BBC Radio 2, whilst a host of Amazing Radio DJs have been charmed by the trio’s invigorating music, including Simon Raymonde, Charlie Ashcroft, Shell Zenner and Gill Mills.
The group have already developed a solid live reputation through their performances at some of London’s most iconic venues, including a support slot for Freddie Dickson at KOKO, a headline show at The Lexington, and a stirring showcase at Proud Camden, with gigs around the country soon to follow.
