Pop Winds are both tense and free. Their music is driven by strong chordal movements on guitar and altered saxophone, the instruments filling the room with a beautiful, natural reverberation. But it is not loose music, rather they are focused deeply through distorted electronic samples: hypotonic drums and bouncy synths. All three members sing layered vocal harmonies, awash in delay, while lead vocalist Devon Welsh delivers a clear tenor - in a classic, pseudo-Elvis tone - which sits perfectly atop each song. "Feel It", off of The Turquoise clearly displays this amazing tone, as well as a sort of bleeding from the first-person, who has given up on a controlling desire.
Joined by Kyle Bennet and Austin Milne, the trio formed in early 2009 in Montreal, Quebec. Their first full-length, The Turquoise (Arbutus), was released in April 2010.
