Boomkat Product Review:
If Winter Flowers were a place, they'd undoubtedly be some kind of woodland glen - where mist lingers until mid morning and even when the sun burns it off there's that cloying sense of unease... Their self titled debut, Winter Flowers is the working name of Gavin Toler, Christof Certik, Astrid Quay, Sasha Smith, and Evan Conway - all of whom bring an individual element to the soft-focus aural tapestry that comprises guitars, flutes, mandolins, glockenspiels, harpsichords, and soaring three-part vocal harmonies. Folk in the traditional sense of the genre, Winter Flowers probably go for all the Avalon business - with this debut LP staying just the right side of the dippy vs. enjoyable divide. Opening on 'Misty Morning Land' (a song whose debt to Vashti Bunyan is diamond clear), the likes of 'End Of The War', 'Ivory Path' and 'White Pilgrim' are sleight yet wholesome - with a pitter-patter of instrumentation framing the closely coordinated vocals perfectly. Closing with the quietly dramatic 'Christ Bird', Winter Flowers recall a more innocent time for folk that is very welcome.
