In today's music world it's getting harder to find a band that takes an honest original approach to rock n roll. It seems like it's been a while since a new band has come along with music really worth getting excited about. The four unknown Midwestern transplants that form Wintergreen are working to change that. Writing complex quality pop songs void of gimmicks and cliches, their sound is a balance of high energy and melancholy atmosphere. Wintergreen teamed up with producer/mixer Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Keith Richards, My Morning Jacket, Fiona Apple) to put the final touches on their debut EP. With their first release, Wintergreen showcase refreshingly elaborate guitar work, catchy vocal melodies, and strong rhythmic backbone. Creating a heartfelt sound that is truly timeless, original yet subtly familiar, every note is played with a precise passion that shakes listeners to the core. Hard working and humble, the taste and talent demonstrated by LA's Wintergreen is giving people reasons to remain in love with music. Give it one listen and you'll be hooked.

put you on cloud 9, welcome to the chapel of LA's Wintergreen. "When I Wake Up," and to a lesser extent "Waste of Time" fulfills the proposal I just laid out to a fault, and damn near sounds like the hottest thing I've heard in 2006 thus far. The considerably less blithe cuts that round out Extended Play, specifically "Last Dance" exposes the visage of Wintergreen's more serious tenor without succumbing to any embarrassing melodrama that has sunk so many of their contemporaries.
