Winter Family

Jerusalem. Paris. Brooklyn

Ruth Rosenthal & Xavier Klaine

 our current music is like an apocalyptic report of our life,in a group, a couple, a family, with friendships and farewells. Our 2nd Album ‘Red Sugar’ is out both in a cd via  Subrosa and 2xLP via Alt.vinyl.

our music combines the two worlds that we live through.

The world around, saturated, incarnated in its extremes by Jerusalem , a city where Ruth grew in and that we love and that is sick by his men. And the other world, a family, our daughter ,living in an isolated farm in France where donkeys proudly ventilate the valley,and finally living here in Crown Heights in Brooklyn, though Summer in Crown Heights is more about r’nb and methadon so maybe our music is about to change…or not.

The world could finish tomorrow, but inside it was beautiful.

A specific thing you like in girls/ boys: We like russians, boys & girls

The Playlist

 If to describe an instrument as heavenly I would suggest it would be the Pipe Organ. Something is inherently cathartic and redeeming about its sound, salvation awaits you right down the notes (never underestimate the power of association, It’s ever binding). Winter Family celebrate the Pipe Organ, often playing it in churches, accompanied by Ruth’s deep & impressive vocals, reciting and chanting lyrical lyrics verging on Spoken word, delivered in a mass-like session. Listening to them might highly engage your senses, even so at times it feels like the door will open at any minute and the messiah will hover in surrounded by halo of white light.
