Winter Villains are an ethereal, atmospheric chamber pop band, who combine orchestral instrumentation, layered vocals and experimental sounds to create their music.

“Beautiful, soaring, multi-instrumental indie pop music.” - Jen Long, BBC Introducing

"Sweeping and other worldly" - TLOBF


Winter Villains are a six-piece chamber-pop outfit from Cardiff. Starting out as the brainchild of founding members Josef and Faye, the band grew in numbers to include members of the Cardiff music community. Their early songs quickly caught the attention of local and national press, and earned early praise from DJs such as Jen Long (BBC Introducing), Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music), Bethan Elfyn and Adam Walton (BBC Radio Wales). The band's live performances quickly established them as ones to watch, as they began to gig across the UK playing at at Swn and Hay Festivals along the way.

By early 2012, the band had completed recording their debut album 'February'. This was shortly followed by a BBC Introducing session for Jen Long. The first single, 'Moon' was released in August 2012, with the video previewing on the acclaimed music site 'The Line of Best Fit'. The second single 'The Air' is released on February 4th, 2013, followed by the full length debut album later in the year on Barely Regal Records.
