Heart of the Golden Mystics is Winchester 7 & the Runners’ Album

Good Day Noir Family,
I already reviewed Winchester 7 & the Runners but they are out now with a new album and I want to share my opinion about it.

Heart of the Golden Mystics is Winchester 7 & the Runners’ Album

The style inspired by classic rock offered by this band is reconfirmed in this new album.

Blues and rock influences predominate and the band’s passionate and free-spirited performance makes these songs a pleasure to listen to.

The thing I like the most about this band are the melodic lines which are always highly sought after and innovative.

Although the music could be labeled as alternative rock, the melodic part of the voice is the hallmark of Winchester 7 & the Runners.

The somewhat raw sound makes these songs even more real and sincere and adds a very special charm to this album. These guys have clear ideas and a solid artistic vision.

They always manage to compose music out of the ordinary that has the ability to open the mind of the listener.

Absolutely confirmed!

Heart of the Golden Mystics is Winchester 7 & the Runners’ Album Out Now!


Heart of the Golden Mystics is Winchester 7 & the Runners’ Album

International alternatives Winchester 7 & the Runners, known for their powerful songwriting and unique fusion of rock and electric ukulele, deliver the long-awaited and beautifully uplifting album ‘Heart Of The Golden Mystics’.

Seven original songs make up the project, the ever-engaging writing style of the band shining brightly throughout an impressively eclectic collection.

Featuring unforgettable songwriting journeys like ‘The Saint Simon Killer Returns’, the EP celebrates the band’s distinctive set-up and storytelling, with a superb blending of melody and production strength that ultimately raises the bar further still.

Many arrangements have the feel of a full-rock, arena-ready band, with a choir of voices and a clear degree of passion driving things in the right direction, such as ‘Your House of Cards’. Elsewhere though, we get plenty of classic ukulele softness, with reflective thinkers, such as ‘Her Double Life’.

Songs like ‘The Sum Of Our Mistakes’ and ‘Miss Merry’s Memoriam’ achieve a fine balance between the two extremes, with devotion and heart at their core, and the former a dreamy, almost shoe-gaze exterior; creating a real feeling of escapism as the electric ukuleles and synths cascade.

Also included as a bonus track is cover of New Order’s ‘Bizarre Love Triangle’ which compliments the EP as a whole in reaching a defiant peak, wrapping up the project whilst elevating the near-euphoric sound of a committed rock band on an unrivaled high.

Backed by an extensive set-list, and prior releases including 2020 stand-out single ‘In the Morning Light’ and last December’s EP release, ‘Catacomb Songs’, Winchester 7 & the Runners stand tall on the presence and poetic contemplation of their writing. They embrace listeners with the wholly organic, stage-show-ready sound of a band who live to create.
