Winter Gloves began with a single microphone in Charles F's downtown Montreal apartment as he tried to piece together the distance he'd covered since growing up in the countryside of a very rural Quebec. The jarring shift of such a transition seemed to peek through every chance it could, a constant inspiration as much as frustration that was drafted in the band's self-released EP of mainly demo tracks.

With only a handful of live shows behind them at the beginning of the year, Winter Gloves was already receiving invitations to join dates with bands the likes The D'Urbervilles, Jealous Girlfriends and Tokyo Police Club on a series of sold-out tour dates (Montreal, Ottawa, two Toronto shows). Such well-attended shows helped spread what was already becoming the wildfire of their demo tracks across blogs and music chat sites, and lead to top pick coverage at both Canadian Music Week and NXNE this year.

If you attended any of these earlier shows, you may have caught (literally) a copy of the Winter Gloves' EP as dozens were thrown offstage during their set. If not, you can grab your own copy of the Let Me Drive EP (injury-free), now available through iTunes on Paper Bag Digital .

Paper Bag Records will be behind the release of Winter Gloves' full length debut, about a girl, which will pick up where these song sketches left off. The album was recorded in Toronto during the Winter of 2008 with Producer Jon Drew (Tokyo Police Club, F*cked Up) and is set to drop in Canada on September 9, 2008. Full Fall tour details coming soon.
