"Melodic and evocative of a warm winter room at dusk for some reason, the chorus will put you in mind of an acoustic Dexys whilst the melody lines will call to mind an early Badly Drawn Boy." -

Releasing their debut album in 2011, The Deadly Winters have created some of the most wonderfully heartfelt and emotive story-based music around today, most of which have deep rooted historical content - songs such as Burke & Hare and The Mines of Spennymoor being evidence of this.
The Deadly Winters have now led us into the colder season of winter 2012/13 with a brand new EP – Raise the Coin.
The recording of these songs saw the band return to work with Producer Andy Miller at Gargleblast Studios in Hamilton, Scotland, the result being four lovingly crafted, historical-based folk rock songs that focus on the theme of people’s inherent lust for money, and the lengths to which they will go to gain it.
Tracks from the EP have received play on Roddy Hart and Iain Anderson's shows on BBC Radio Scotland, Jim Gellatly's Weekly Podcast and Amazing Radio shows.
Live, the band have supported The Staves, performed with Megson at The IVFDF (Aberdeen) as well as appearances at Celtic Connections, Perthshire Amber (Dougie MacLean Festival), House Music Folk Festival (Kinlochard) The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Edinburgh Rock n Roll Marathon, The Southern Gatherin’ Festival (Peebles) and Kaleidoscope Festival (St Andrews).
