Winterbourne have returned with the release of their brand new single ‘Better’, the first offering from their forthcoming debut new album.
Premiering the single on Good Nights with Bridget Hustwaite, ‘Better’ is a new direction for long-time friends and collaborators James Draper and Jordan Brady. The song weaves rollicking guitars with pop sensibilities, as the lyrics rip apart cultural pressures around bettering yourself, something worsened by social media.
After years of honing their craft in the studio and on stage, the Central Coast duo recorded their debut album over a six-month period at La Cueva, an idyllic, remote studio in Byron Bay, as well as a few stints at The Grove. Winterbourne worked with their self-appointed musical dream team consisting of producer Andy Mak, engineer Jackson Barclay and multi-instrumentalist Thom Mak.
Originally discovered on the busking scene, Winterbourne have quickly amassed a loyal following touring consistently around the country. They released two EP’s – All But The Sun (2014) which peaked at #9 on the iTunes Album Chart and Pendulum (2016) which charted #23 on ARIA Album Chart. In total, Winterbourne’s music has now been streamed over 10.4 million times globally. Over the past two years they’ve sold out headline shows and supported the likes of The Rubens, Lewis Watson and Little May – just to name a few. Last year they journeyed to Canada for the first time playing at Break Out West Festival then spent three weeks co-writing around Europe/UK during which time they sold out their first ever London show (130 cap) in less than two weeks and secured a UK/Europe live agent (ATC Live).
