The singer and songwriter of alternative rock music known as Winter Darks has released her debut album, “Any Place All the Time.” The record contains 11 original Winter Darks songs for an approximate total listening time of 42 minutes. It has been proudly published on the Spaceship Radio independent music label without the direction of the corporate music industry. Bearing elements of alt-rock, early indie rock and even pre-millennium emo, “Any Place All the Time” showcases Winter Darks as one of today’s most intriguing rock songwriters.
Portland, Oregon’s Winter Darks cites as main artistic influences Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, classical guitar music, ’90s grunge rock and alternative rock. Elements of these are easily discerned in “Any Place All the Time,” so that fans of the above are sure to find something they appreciate in this Freshman release from Winter Darks.
As her stage moniker hints, Winter Darks began in music under bleak circumstances. Asked to describe her start as an artist, Darks writes, “Isolation + trauma + desperation.” However, she also reveals that creativity in music comes naturally to her: “I started writing melodies and ideas the day I picked up a guitar.”
Darks has described her music as “gloomily optimistic.” A down-to-earth and discernably genuine person, she openly declares her songs “honest and relatable.” Nevertheless, Winter Darks does have an introverted facet to her musical character.
“When I started playing guitar,” writes Darks, “I didn’t want anyone to hear what I had written, so I only played guitar for other people’s bands and never sang. I wasn’t that happy, so I tried making my own project using my songs but finding someone to sing my lyrics for me. I never found the right chemistry with anyone, so I tried playing and singing one of my songs at an open mic, and it finally felt right.”
“Any Place All the Time,” the debut album from Winter Darks, is available at over 600 quality digital music stores online worldwide now. Get in early, alt-rock fans.
