This album is a portrait of winter. Of stillness. Of serenity. Of reflection. Of confinement. Of the magic in one night's silence. Of cold. Of coziness. Of celebration. Of snow. Of the simple enchantment of a crackling fire. Of belief. Of families coming together, whether in spirit or in location. Of perseverance. Of staying warm. And of the wonder that can be found in something as simple as the ringing of a bell.
"Winter" is the second of four seasonal EPs by Nick + Noah, a pop duo consisting of longtime friends and collaborators Nick Frenay and Noah Kellman.
