Vancouver’s Winona Forever have ridden a wave of musical curiosity and chemistry further than imagined when forming in 2014. After spending formative years touring Canada and packing Vancouver’s resilient DIY venues, the band stumbled into an international following with 2017 single “Keep Kool.” Listeners were quick to tune in to previous releases while waiting for 2019’s Feelgood, a sophomore album that sold out a modest vinyl release through Kingfisher Bluez label. In 2022, Winona Forever started to distribute new singles through Acrophase Records, with an aggressive US touring schedule allowing longtime cross-border listeners to finally come see the real thing.
With a catalog offering thoughtful, tangled rhythms and frantic garage-rock head nods, Winona Forever refuses to be boring. Embracing the warm and free spirited leanings of home recording, the band achieves a recorded sound that is equal parts fresh and timeless.
Recent singles “Never Enuff” and “Butterflies” offer a hypnotic foray into piano based songwriting, signaling another chapter in the Winona Forever songbook. Having lived together for many years, Winona Forever’s live show plays as a confident and witty conversation between friends. With milestones such as Pop Montreal, Sled Island, SXSW and an Audiotree live session under their belt, the band continues to push forward towards fresh musical territory and new adventures.
