Winter Gloves – Party People

Montreal’s Winter Gloves are set to release A Way To Celebrate, a new digital-only complement to their debut album, about a girl, which will be available from iTunes on October 6th at a special low price.

A Way To Celebrate is a reworking of the band’s debut LP, about a girl, which included the song, “Invisible,” ranked #17 as one of Esquire’s “Top 50 Songs Every Man Should Be Listening To,” and caused SPIN.com to call them a “hot Montreal band…wistful keyboard kitsch should please fans of Ra Ra Riot’s tightly woven pop songs or Wolf Parade’s more ambitious rambles.”

The digital release is a collection of remixes, live versions, experiments with arrangements and everything that made sense in between, including a recording in a local train station in the band’s hometown. Winter Gloves are also releasing their video for ‘Party People’, directed by Marie-Eve Lapointe and assisted by Vincent Chalifour, in support of their forthcoming tour.

Winter Gloves has spent the past year taking about a girl on the road across Canada and the US, touring alongside the likes of You Say Party! We Say Die! and Thunderheist, with a solid sprinkling of summer festivals thrown in for good measure. The shape-shifting that happens when you bring a song on the road is an evolution that the band wanted to document; A Way To Celebrate is an archive of this time on the road as much as it is a thanks to the band’s new fans who have supported the original debut album.
