Winter and Triptides perform songs from their collaborative album “Estrela Mágica” at San Francisco’s Rickshaw Stop

Last fall, Winter and Triptides came together and released a magical album, perfectly titled “Estrela Mágica.” Both bands ventured off together this past week on a West Coast tour and performed a few songs for the first time as one, before playing separate sets with their own bands.

I was able to catch their performance at San Francisco’s Rickshaw Stop this past Sunday and it was no surprise how amazing their performance was. If you listen to the record, the first thing that is sure to catch your attention will most likely be the wide lo-fi analog sound of the recordings. It was definitely an experience to hear these songs played live in an intimate setting. One of my favorite things about this record, and much of Winter’s music in general, is how front woman, Samira Winter, sings a lot of her songs in Portuguese. The beautiful language mixed with lo-fi dream-pop vocals perfectly complements the music.

There was also something about having these two bands (who happen to have slightly different sounds individually) come together to create amazing material that was like a breath of fresh air. They both definitely have a bigger following in southern California, but were really eager to visit new cities with hopes of playing to anyone that would support and listen to them. Both bands are made up of creatives that genuinely put their soul into their work and look like they enjoy and take in every moment of their performance.

If you ever have a chance to catch Winter or Triptides in a city near you, definitely check them out cause they did not disappoint.
