blackwinterwells Releases ‘Crystal Shards’

Ontario-based multi-faceted artist and producer blackwinterwells releases her full-length album Crystal Shards via Eyeball Records. The 12-track project was built over the course of two years, comprising of previously released songs such as “darkkmagician” and “useless”, and cascades electronic rage-pop, hip-hop, emo, shoegaze, and pure beat-centric futuristic music. Crystal Shards includes features from internet realm contemporaries dolly, 8485, emotionals, Saturn and bella lugxsi.




blackwinterwells will join Fish Narc and 8485 this July to embark on her first tour across North America. The 15-date run begins on July 11th in Berkeley and includes stops in Los Angeles, Dallas, Chicago, Philadelphia and New York City before wrapping up in Allston on July 30th.




Hamilton, Ontario-based Madeline Winter has a kaleidoscopic identity with the pseudonyms Drainpuppet and blackwinterwells. A hyper-accelerated lone writer, producer and performer for the digital generation, blackwinterwells has been the architect of the early sound of various exciting young artists (quinn, glaive, midwxst, dolly, 8485 and many more) as a producer and the leader of the “cybernetic healing” helix tears collective. Crystal Shards sees wells taking a step into the spotlight with her own vocals and image on display allowing audiences to fully enter the blackwinterwells realm.
