Bask in the warmth of Winter’s “Say” Angel Aura

Since arriving in the U.S. from her native Brazil, lo-fi indie songwriter Winter has established herself through a collection of glimmering and broken-hearted songs to soundtrack the warm embrace of the dawn hours. Today she shares "Say," a song that switches morning light for something a little darker. Arpeggiated synths and a driving bassline act as a backdrop for Winter's brittle yet determined vocals, combining to create something truly alive. The night time vibe suits Winter, adding a blissed-out trippiness to her emotionally pourous songwriting.

Speaking about "Say" via email, Winter told The FADER: "It was the last song I wrote and it wasn't even supposed to make it on the record cause it was recorded after we were done but every time I put it on it was so contagious that I just felt we had to include it. It puts me in a trance in a way I've never experienced before in a Winter song…It's probably the first Winter song that I would want to play at a club."

"Say" appears on Winter's forthcoming album Endless Space (Between You & I), due May 15 via Bar/None Records.
