According to the duo’s own press, Winter Witches is a queer love story. It is both a creative and life partnership between Sweeney & Em. They have released a new single “Train” b/w “Water” which strikes with more desolate beauty than anything else imagined as of late. Their sound is dark, orchestral, and soothing. It’s difficult not to think of two other musicians, Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard, both originally of Australia as well with music in a similar vein. Regardless though, both these tracks are brimming with fiery precision, a meaningful design, grace and charm.
