PREMIERE: The Winter Passing’s ‘A Different Space Of Mind’ fuses modern emo with Irish roots (full-album stream)

Formed in 2012, Irish quintet the Winter Passing has spent the past three years building to this point—the release of their debut full-length, A Different Space Of Mind. The band draws heavily from turn-of-the-century melodic emo like the Get Up Kids and the Anniversary (the fact that they have coed vocals certainly doesn’t hurt), as well as more modern bands like Tigers Jaw and even more than a hint of their Irish heritage popping up. Vocalist/guitarist Rob Flynn gives his thoughts on the meaning behind A Different Space Of Mind:

“‘A Different Space of Mind’ is a record about the coming of age, the transition from adolescence into adulthood and the mixed emotions you experience in that transition. The feelings, opinions, ideas and conceptions of the world around you and the people/experiences you meet along the way. The album touches on dark times throughout, but never without that glimmer of hope in every scenario that overcomes the sadness, your means to carry on.”

The Winter Passing’s A Different Space Of Mind comes out September 18 via 6131 and FITA Records and can be pre-ordered now (U.S./Europe).
