“What’s most interesting about Boston band The Winter Project’s most recent album — “Brighter Days?” — is just how much of an exposed raw nerve the whole thing is. Underneath the album’s cheap whiskey swagger and punch-drunk attack is a sort of wounded vulnerability that gives the whole thing a sense of soul.”  —V. Infante

“The band isn’t trying to convince you that life is peachy. Instead, they sprinkle lyrical jewels on every song of the album. For hardcore fans, vocal dominance usually signals a turn toward melody, accessibility, and so-called maturity; but in this band’s case, they balance out whiplash in a series of subtle jerks, confounding expectations but providing somewhat of a relief.”

‘Brighter Days’ proves to be a slice of brilliance, showing off The Winter Project’s uncanny ability to craft an entire world, so familiar and vital. Impressive chops adorn the whole of the album, from the wild guitar work to the force of nature approach of the rhythm section. Full of intricate detail every single word matters, for the Winter Project prove to be impressive storytellers.”
Entropy Magazine, Nov. 2019

The band has a wide range of styles. They’ll do straightforward rock all the way through alt country.
Alternative Addiction, Oct. 2019

“The essence of the Boston rock scene… killer songs and they play them with ferocity on stage. They give it their all because this is what Boston rock is all about.
Boston Man Magazine, Oct. 2019

Winter Project delivers bleak, beautiful ‘Suburban Discontent’
The album writhes and rages in the wreckage of dashed dreams and scorched futures. The band lays down a sturdy rock ‘n’ roll foundation that almost obscures the album’s desolation. There’s a soulfulness inherent in the vocals, certainly, and a vibrancy in the instrumentation, but even those serve to contrast to the ashen portrait the band presents.”  —Victor D. Infante

“You really capture, with Pantomime, what life is like for normal everyday people.”
AVA Live Radio, June 2018

“Their punchy Alternative approach to angular guitar progressions packs their latest single Kismet with so much hype that if you didn’t feel anything as the sonic licks soar through the melodies I’d say you’re pretty much dead inside. ”
Amelia Vandergast at ANR Factory, June 2018

“The Winter Project follows a long tradition of awesome bands to come out of Boston. They’ve got the appropriate Boston attitude and it bleeds out of their music. ”
Alternative Addiction, May 2018

“Straight out of the traps and boasting a youthful exuberance that could only come from a bunch of young bucks. There are Strokes-like riffs and a young Jam-like ferocity. This band could go the whole way.”
MP3hugger, Oct 2017

“Boston rockers The Winter Project venture into some unhealthy territory. Beginning with loneliness and ending in a limbo that makes the Facebook relationship status “It’s complicated” seem like an understatement, the band mines that interstitial space between where a romance is dead, and yet not really gone.”  —Victor D. Infante

“Classic proto-grunge with elements of new wave… Lots of snarly guitar and poppy quasi-hooks” —Francis DiMenno
The Noise July 2017

“Man, this EP is exactly what Boston rock should sound like.” —George Dow
The Noise Feb 2017

“Muscular and peculiarly pop-friendly brand of rock ‘n’ roll. There’s a great deal of heart and vibrancy in this album.” —
