The WINTYR is an alternative // folktronic trio making music in the cities of Cape Town & London.
Consisting of songwriter and frontwoman Evelyn Hart, Tristan Carmicheal (synth, piano & guitars) and Brendyn Rossouw (percussion), the group was formed in studio as they came together to write material and produce tracks for Evelyn’s solo album.
The collaboration resulted in a significant progression in sound and energy, characterised by ethereal vocals, soaring synths and warlike oriental-inspired percussion. Combined with a storyteller’s depth, The WINTYR’s music has been described as cinematic & emotive, eliciting comparisons to the music of London Grammar, The Naked & Famous, M83 and Sigur Rós.
Following two years of work, an album was born. ‘Fury’, had its worldwide online debut on the 18th of November 2015, reaching no.1 on the electronic charts for iTunes Africa on it’s first day of release.
