The Great Escape Preview: Wintersleep

Halifax band Wintersleep won a Juno Award for New Group of the Year after releasing their third album, Welcome to the Night Sky, in 2007. While their music can make them as canon as Canadian sweethearts Wolf Parade or Broken Social Scene, the melodies they produce are heavier than you might expect. The heaviness is not startling because it is loud, but because it seems to have come from another time—it's a heaviness that sets them apart from the other bands stepping onto the scene and creates an atmosphere that is both intense and reassuring.
