Winterpills with their seventh album, a provocative entry in its catalog, Love Songs on Signature Sounds. Recorded and co-produced by Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., The Pixies, Lou Barlow, Speedy Ortiz), the album showcases an invigorated and raw Winterpills. This new release marks ten years as a band. The Northampton, Massachusetts quintet are consummate masters of the slow burn they\'ve nurtured a singular aesthetic with lush and sometimes gritty instrumentation, emotive and literate lyrics, sublime vocal harmonies, and cinematically structured songs that stealthily pull you in and then destroy you. Love Songs is tightly thematic. \"At first the thought of calling it Love Songs was intended as a whimsical nod to the other million albums of the same title,\" Price says, \"but then casting that light on the existing songs made them jump into stark relief they were all love songs after all, though arriving at that place through strange portals and unused back roads.\" The tracks are definitely not your standard missives of affection within the 11-song album, Winterpills explores love of the idea of love, love of unrealized love, love of the dead, love of family secrets, love of the concept of eternal return, love of ideas, and love of celebrity.
