The Four Winds by Handful of Snowdrops

A new single from one of the best synthpop/darkwave bands around.

What a nice way to start the new year: Quebec-based Handful of Snowdrops have kicked off 2020 with a brand new single. For my money, Handful of Snowdrops is one of the best synthpop/​darkwave bands around, and ​“The Four Winds” is a perfect example of why thanks to its pulsing synths, urgent dance rhythms, ghostly guitars, and haunting vocals.

The single’s b-sides include a lovely instrumental piece titled ​“Tall Sails” and a remix of ​“The Four Winds” that ups the discothèque factor by a few degrees.
