Wintry are formed by Alex Twin (3 Cold Men & Individual Industry)
and Anne Goldacker (ex- Obsc(y)re).
Wintry mixes melancholy and ethereal sounds together with tribal percussion and electro
beats, which creates an atmospheric crossover between Dark Wave & Ethereal Pop.
The project came about when Alex recorded some demo tracks in 1995 which sounded very
different to Individual Industry's style and so Wintry was born.
After that, Alex stopped the project to go ahead with 3 Cold Men and just in 2000, he took some
old ideas and started work on this project again. He worked some months on the debut album
and Maurizio Bonito did the production. Previous, the band had a guest singer, Sheila. She
recorded just one song for the German compilation, Harmonia Mundi released in 2006 by Danse
In 2007, Anne Goldacker came to the band, and started record the vocals for the first album.
“Atmosphere around Us” is the debut album of the Brazilian/German band.
Recorded between 2000 and 2008 it was produced by Maurizio Bonito (3 Cold Men) & Marcelo
Gallo (Pitch Yarn of Matter and Mauve) and mixed in december/2008. One limited edition was
released as well, with 4 demo tracks and 6 remixes of Mechanical Moth, Sci-Fi Moritz, In
Auroram, FFFC, Downward Path and Jean (Scarlet Leaves). The songs “Cinema of Soul” and
“Unreale Welt” are singing in German and the others in English. Dark moments, melancholic
and sometimes pop, the whole work get sounds with an own identity. Songs as “Cinema of
Soul”, “Voices”, “True Lies”, “Unreale Welt” and “Don't give Away Your Dreams” give us the
main idea of the band's sound, with atmospheric strings, dark/tribal percussions and dense
vocals. Tracks like “Time” and “Words”, show us a 80´s side of the band, with pop melodies
and construction. In “Burning Soul”, sounds more electro and old school, with old style's
Somewhere between Dead Can Dance & Delerium, Wintry form a bridge between 80s Goth and
21st century electro.
