The Winter Gypsy are a six-piece indie folk group from Adelaide, South Australia. Forming as a collusion of four separate bands in August, 2015, the band ranges from soft folk melodies and haunting vocal harmonies to soaring, upbeat instrumentals. The band has a complex dichotomy of both ambient and driving, distorted solos. Drawing comparisons to The Middle East, Bon Iver, and Bombay Bicycle Club, their sound is complemented by an intense and intricate range of instruments.
Supporting the likes of Harts, Little May, Tash Sultana, Mosquito Coast, High Highs, Slum Sociable, and Tiny Little Houses; the band’s loyal fan-base has resulted in several sold out headline shows.
“Fans of The Middle East, Angus Stone and that relaxed and clearly identifiable coastal brand of indie folk will be more than satisfied with what The Winter Gypsy are selling. The Winter Gypsy are at the forefront of a new wave of complex organic Australian folk music and the latest EP only supports this sentiment.” – Happy
“The Winter Gypsy delivered a set filled with dreamy melodies, airy vocals and twangy guitars. Their sound was a mixture of hauntingly folk harmonies and ambient instrumentals and instantly drew on comparisons to Bon Iver.” – Semple Size (VICE blog)
“Adelaide group The Winter Gypsy have just dished up a delicious portion of alt-folk majesty, garnished with one of our favourite clips in recent memory.” – Tone Deaf
