You may be able to tell from the corny album title that these guys' first language is not English. The Winnerys are actually from Spain. But man, if you didn't know that before listening to this album, you'd be forgiven for thinking that they were born and raised on the banks of the river Mersey. With their British Invasion influences firmly stitched to their sleeves, The Winnerys rip through sixteen tracks of perfect psychedelic guitar-pop.
Intricate harmonies, anthemic choruses and occasional psychedelic guitar flourishes are the order of the day here. Opener "Every Day" sets the tone nicely with its stomping drumbeat and bouncing bassline; the band does little to stray from the classic power-pop equation, but it's all done so well, and with such a sense of fun, that the lack of diversity never really becomes a problem. "It's Up To You" would give any power-pop enthusiast goosebumps, given its weaving harmonies and handclaps and the soaring work of lead singer Fausto Martin, whose voice sounds a lot like another Anglophile, Robert Pollard.

A surprisingly consistent album with a handful of lyrical gems ("I'm writing this song for the girl that I love / She owes me my records, I owe her my soul" from the modest "Even More Than Myself"), And...The Winnerys is a slick, enjoyable throwback to the pop sounds of the sixties.

Bio

Formed in Madrid in 1999, The Winnerys are like many other Rainbow Quartz bands influenced by the melodic 60's sounds of the Kinks, Beatles, Stones and the Hollies. However, the principle writers of The Winnerys (F. Martin &. J. Polo) write their material with a sound that is clearly their own. The Winnerys have created sound that is distinctly modern while still tipping their hats to the founding fathers of melodic guitar based rock and even sound at times like The Yachts from the 80's and The Dentists from the 90's.
