Winter and Williams – Hills and Shadows

Winter and Williams follow up last year’s EP3 with this delightful single recorded with Van Morrison musician Richard Dunn and featuring strings from Cardiff’s own Mavron Quartet. This acoustic song has a simple but effective melody and the combination of Peter Winter’s breathy vocals and backing vocals from Ellie Burton is a winning combination. The classy Robert Kirby style string arrangement helps brings an added dimension and depth to the song. Winter and Williams are certainly progressing as a band and may have found their niche with this line up. Peter Winter is improving steadily as a singer and song writer and Winter and Williams sound as though they are on the verge of becoming a key player in Cardiff’s vibrant acoustic scene.
