The Declining Winter return after a three year lay off with what is perhaps their strongest statement to date. Pushing on from the pastoral blueprint of the long sold out ‘Home For Lost Souls’ (2015),‘Belmont Slope’ is a bold and varied album, extending the boundaries of their earlier sound, introducing pop sensibilities and daring electronic flourishes. Truly a Northern English album, Belmont Slope is a haphazard car ride across the M62, a love letter to the hills of Yorkshire and Lancashire, a paean to desolate beauty, unattainable love and lost friends.
The Declining Winter are a British band based in Yorkshire, UK, led by Richard Adams, the co-founder of the Domino Records group Hood. They released their debut single "The Future Sound of Hip Hop Parts 1 & 2" on Misplaced Music in November 2007. The record was unique as it is made of mostly recycled materials reflecting the band's keen interest in the environment.
