Winters End Debut EP, DreamWalker, the result of a tumultuous year for the brother and sister duo. 2017 saw the siblings deal with many of life’s biggest challenges which included the death of a loved-one, relationship breakdowns, sudden re-locations, changes in employment and health issues.

Winters End on “Ivy”:
“Ivy” was a track written following the breakup of Marissa’s (vocals) long-term relationship. It recounts the feeling of two people being torn apart from one another as life drags them in opposite directions. It was a difficult song for her to write, as it required her to confront her feelings with the doomed relationship head on, accepting that it was, in fact, over. While recording, she even went so far as to force herself to cry to properly capture the pain she felt when writing the track. The result is an honest and emotive delivery of the loss she felt during the breakup.
