The Declining Winter - The Definition Glance
Following a series of low key releases, The Definition Glance is The Declining Winter's first fully fledged offering since 2018's album Belmont Slope, and comes ahead of a new album, Really Early, Really Late, due in 2022.
The Declining Winter is a long-running band led by Richard Adams, the co-founder of Hood. They play a unique form of pastoral pop that takes in influences from lo-fi, electronica and post-rock with a strong visual aesthetic inspired by the countryside of their home in Yorkshire.
Continuing to furrow an idiosyncratic path through the lesser known hedgerows of English experimental indie music, The Definition Glance is a classic ‘single of two halves,’ with the poppy title track an electronic, and almost danceable, tour de force of pulsating bass and warm synths; whilst on the flip, the more reflective six minute ‘Autumn Hours’ is a much gentler post-rock delicate sprawl. Both songs are abundantly beautiful and bitter-sweet, each for different reasons, and make up a must-own 7".
