Product Information

When Chris Garneau started working on Winter Games five years ago, he had a simple premise in mind: exploring the frostbitten season through secondhand story lines. Not long-forgotten memories of merriment and myrrh so much as the many ways smothered sunrises and blanketed windowsills manipulate our moods and tighten – or in some cases, altogether undo – our family ties. "This record isn't about trivial shit," explains Garneau. "It's about why love doesn't happen right, how your person is shaped in the early stages of life. It's about defeating parental abandonment, sexual abuse, or family rejection. It's about people who struggle well, what it means to have these things happen to you as a child and play out later in life."
And yet Winter Games isn't a downer. In its own twisted way, it's triumphant, bursting at the seams with Garneau's barebones melodies and the richly woven arrangements of CJ Camerieri and Rob Moose – perfectly paced orchestrations that parallel their work on Bon Iver's GRAMMY-winning debut as a full-blooded group.
