The Winter Kings, fronted by Austin Kehoe and Max Delderfield, create lyrically interesting alternative music with an intelligent edge. Their music interweaves melody and meaning, an exploration of tension and resolution, with a live set which successfully runs the gamut from acoustic introspection to alternative rock. Based in Cambridge, England, The Winter Kings play actively on the local scene and have developed a large fan base in Cambridge and London and also online.
The Winter Kings' style is a mix of genres in the vein of Nick Cave, Joy Division and The Editors. Already impressing promoters across Cambridgeshire, they also plan to collaborate with the the No More Landmines Trust, which will include a national release of their song 'Landmines', whereby the single will be sold for £1, with all proceeds used to help the work of The No More Landmines Trust.
The band have been described as, "an accessible, more electric Nick Cave" by Agenda Magazine. They recently featured on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire's The Audio Files and their track 'Fall from Grace' appeared on the cover mount cd of January 2007's issue of Playmusic Magazine.
