Based: Cape Town / London
The WINTYR is an alternative folktronic trio currently based between the cities of London and Cape Town.
Consisting of songwriter and frontwoman Evelyn Hart, Tristan Carmicheal (synth, piano & guitars) and Brendyn Rossouw (percussion), the group was formed in studio as they came together to write material and produce tracks for Evelyn’s solo album.
The collaboration resulted in a significant progression in sound and energy, characterised by ethereal vocals, soaring synths and warlike oriental-inspired percussion. Combined with a storyteller’s depth, The WINTYR’s music has been described as cinematic & emotive, eliciting comparisons to the music of London Grammar, The Naked & Famous and M83.
Following two years of work, an album was born. ‘Fury’, had it’s worldwide online debut on the 18th of November 2015, reaching no.1 on the electronic charts for iTunes South Africa on it’s first day.
