“Winstons make meat-and-potatoes garage-soul, the kind of no-frills rock that’s best enjoyed live, and they know this. That’s in part why the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Virginia duo, who met while working at Baby’s All Right, make a point of recording live to tape. No-touch ups, no retakes.” – Noisey“Without You”, an earnest recitation of deeper feeling invoked by the spirits of every great songwriter of the past. Heavy distortion backs the passionate confessions of hurt souls, with a simply from-the-heart chorus “Baby without you, I feel alone” bringing it all home.” – All Things Go
Brooklyn Vegan has shared Winstons’ second single “Enough”. It follows their first single “Without You” which recently debuted on All Things Go.
