“Brooklyn by Virginia duo of Ben Brock Wilkes & Lou Nutting from Winstons have proved that the rural, rustic Americana primitive spirit of gritty rocking & rolling messy blues can be enjoyed anywhere east, west, north, south & anywhere in between.” – Impose
“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
Impose has shared Winstons new video for their single “Without You”. It will be part of a release slated to come out later this year. They also recently released the single “Enough” on Brooklyn Vegan. The band released two EP’s in 2015 entitled ‘Turpentine’ & ‘Black Dust’. Both singles are out now via Grand Jury.
Winstons is a garage-soul duo out of Virginia, residing in Brooklyn. They do love songs, blue songs, and dance songs with drums, guitar, harmonies, and a harmonica. Their live show is raw and earnest, with a dynamic juxtaposing devotion and depravity. Their sound has drawn comparisons to Screaming’ Jay Hawkins and The Cramps. They self-released two EPs in 2015.
