The single “When Winter Comes,” is Amulet’s follow up release to their successful 2022 album Perfect Fusion.
The single, written during a visit to Alaska, is high-energy alternative rock and features powerful, soaring female vocals, a blistering sax solo, galloping bass, an iconic guitar solo, and perfectly interwoven guitar tones. The song is topped off with driving drums from Dan Milligan of celebrity mega group The Joy Thieves.
“When Winter Comes” imagines the closing stages of an argument between a couple in which the singer starts by defiantly telling her man as he leaves that she won’t apologize or compromise. After reflection, she changes her mind and starts begging for forgiveness, promising to return home.
The track was released with three remixes: one by William Faith of The Bellwether Syndicate (in the style of gothic rock), one by Dan Milligan of The Joy Thieves (deep south vampire rock vibes), and one by Amulet themselves in collaboration with Rob Early of 11Grams (1980s synthpop in the style of bands like Yazoo).
