Since their first album came out in 2005, Winterpills have been slowly tugging on ears with their fragile-but-dangerous chamber-pop songs that The Washington Post called “densely packed but hugely evocative, tiny bombs of feeling and meaning… fiendishly melodic." From the group’s origins one cold winter in 2004 as a song circle for heartache, the band has truly blossomed, releasing three full-length albums — the eponymous debut in 2005, The Light Divides in 2007 and Central Chambers in 2008 — and the 2010 E.P. Tuxedo of Ashes, which The New York Times Jon Pareles praised for “elegant arrangements” of “songs that stay haunted.” 

2012’s All My Lovely Goners embraced the hushed vocal harmonies and graceful chamber-pop sound the group has made its trademark, while pushing the quintet into new sonic realms. MOJO magazine included the album in their 2012 top 10 Americana list. In October, 2014, Winterpills released their 5th full-length, the archival cover's project Echolalia

On March 18, 2016, they released their 7th full length, Love Songs, engineered and co-produced by wunderkind Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr, The Pixies, Lou Barlow, Parquet Courts, Body/Head, Speedy Ortiz, And The Kids)

“I don’t know why Winterpills aren’t one of the most cherished pop bands in the world: Their songs are mournful, slow-exploding and lyrically dazzling, and their albums have a coherence that’s rare.”  – Jonathan Lethem, Rolling Stone, 2013.
