The dead of winter
Lindsay Schoolcraft is very busy at the moment with her activities with Cradle of Filth. She’s not also playing the keyboard but also doing the female vocals on the band’s new album. Somehow, she managed to take some time for her solo project and released the EP “The Dead Of Winter” in March.
Lindsay’s own music is very thoughful and emotional, also a bit sad and dark. The special touch comes from her harp and – of course – the multi-instrumentalists beautiful voice. The EP consists of the title track – a slow, melancholic ballad about a lonely person – a really cool interpretation of Madonna’s “Frozen” and the song “Solstice Day”, which keeps the atmosphere Lindsay created with the other two songs.
Less is more.
Even though there are “only” three songs on the EP, you get 15 minutes of honest, heart-warming and emotional music. To me, it happens very often that I lose myself especially in the title track – it makes my skin crawl! “The Dead Of Winter” shows Lindsay’s impressive talent as a songwriter, instrumentalist and singer. Can’t wait to hearing more from her!
