The Declining Winter – Really Early, Really Late (single premiere)

The Declining Winter is the band led by Richard Adams, the co-founder of the group Hood. Their sound is a unique blend of influences from lo-fi, electronica and post rock with a strong visual aesthetic inspired by the countryside of Yorkshire. Their debut single was The Future Sound of Hip Hop Parts 1 & 2 on Misplaced Music fifteen years ago. This was followed up by the debut album Goodbye Minnesota released by Rusted Rail in 2008 and, in 2009, by the mini album Haunt the Upper Hallways on Home Assembly Music. After a long period of silence, the band (now consisting solely of Richard Adams with various guests) returned in 2013 and 2014 with a couple of eps and a new album, Home For Lost Souls, in 2015, again on Home Assembly Music. Belmont Slope arrived three year later and, in 2021The Definition Glance 7″ appeared on Spanish indie label Acuarela followed by another single I Remember – the lead track featuring the words of poet Thomas Hood.

Really Early, Really Late is the first track to be taken from the forthcoming The Declining Winter album of the same name due on Home Assembly on March 24th.
It sees The Declining Winter main-man Richard Adams collaborate with drummer James Yates (epic45), pianist and guitarist Matthew Jones-Green (Boyracer, The Tall Boy) and saxophonist Robin Smith on an elegiac nine minute opus which recalls the fractured, fragile likes of Talk Talk and Robert Wyatt.
There is also a non LP B Side, The Old Me, showcasing orchestral pop repetition with nods to Michael Nyman and The Divine Comedy’s Promenade LP.

The Declining Winter

Really Early, Really Late (Single) is out now on Home Assembly Music. An album with the same name will follow in late March.
