WL//WH Track Of The Day: (68)LETO “Winter”

Track Of The Day (68)LETO

In the best tradition of the 80s ‘Zimna Fala” and UK Post-punk, Polish band (68)LETO delivers a depressed, fidgety and angsty Coldwave dystopia for decaying wasted industrial areas.

Following last January’s promising debut 5-track EP “NGC 68”, the 4-piece brings us early chilly wafts of incoming “Winter” with the new homonymous single inspired by the children’s poem written by North American author and illustrator Barbara Vance that uses sensory language about the sights, sounds, and feelings of the season to evoke impending chills and gloom from the shifting weather’s predictable cycle.

“Winter” draws out the sheer stark, somehow majesty, of emotional agony with taut pounding drumming, bleak throbbing basslines and shredding abrasive riffing juxtaposed with a rolling sequence of poignant synth stabs, dripping sweeping hopeless melancholy cut through like frozen gusts of winter wind over distorted ominous vocals releasing slow barren howls of danger and doom into a merciless swarm of wintry chaotic shivers.
