"It took less than a year for Halifax quartet Wintersleep to morph from experimental side project into one of the city’s biggest draws. After a handful of high-profile opening slots for Ron Sexsmith, Stars, Constantines, Julie Doiron and Broken Social Scene, the band was selling out every room in town.

"In a region coasting on a decade’s worth of New Seattle buzz, with its fabled, mostly lost record deals and ironic hairstyles, that a four-piece with roots in small town Nova Scotia and the humble hardcore and punk scenes of the city could meld those things together and emerge as one of the most hyped acts in years — and sound nothing like Sloan while doing it — indicates that Halifax might finally be ready to move on.

Wintersleep, the band’s second release (its 2003 debut was also self-titled), could be the album to convert the whole country. Adventurous and expansive — some of the vocal arrangements border on choral — its effusive epics, restrained ballads and full-on rockers comprise a perfect showcase of the Wintersleep aesthetic: driving, sharp percussion, guitars going from shimmer to shriek in an instant and ethereal vocals." exclaim - feb/05
