Something new to discover with every listen...

If there’s a common trait to Canadian rock it’s that it tends to be a little more modest, less brash than that of its southern neighbours. This is certainly true of Wintersleep, who have employed an orchestra this time and then, apparently, asked them to play as quietly as possible. ‘New Inheritors’, even more than their previous three records, is a subtle affair. Even the excellent ‘Trace Decay’, which employs a wailing female backing vocalist, still complicates things enough to stop it being, you know, too obvious. This has some disadvantages, there are no obvious “hits” here, but there is something new to discover with every listen.
