The Record Breakers will keep you warm with their seasonal new single and video Winter — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
“This is one of my favourites that I’ve written,” says Bella Galasso of the young Montreal country-pop outfit. “I was 18 years old when I wrote it, and had just begun a new relationship. I think this song captured my feelings then and still does now, three years later. This song has always meant a lot to me, and contains lyrics that continue to comfort me today. I hope this song brings more warmth and light to an otherwise dark, cold season.”
So do her bandmates Hayden Nolan, Michael Vallinakis, Devan Meisner and Julian Galasso. “This song is captivating, like the first fresh snowfall of the winter season,” they say in a press release. “It actually makes us look forward to winter. We tried to capture the soul of a ’90s country ballad while mixing in a modern edge: Huge harmonies, chimes, and baritone guitars all wrapped in luscious pedal steel take you back to a time of mullets and cassette tapes … ”
The band formed in 2014 for a one-off Beatles-related celebration before exploring and finding their rootsier identity. “We had a special encounter with Blue Rodeo,” they recall. “That inspired us to bring country into our pop sound. So, we’re a country band, we just sing about cars instead of trucks, you could say!”
They released their self-titled debut EP in 2016, followed by Bigger Plans in 2018. This year, they offered the timely Quarantine With You and the bilingual In My Car / Dans Mon Char.
