Indie88 Premiere: Wintersleep’s Chris Bell shares new track ‘Searching in the Dark’

'Division Street' is set for release on June 19

While gearing up for his forthcoming album Division Street, which is set for release on June 19th, Chris Bell of Wintersleep has shared a new track called “Searching in the Dark.”

“Searching in the Dark” comes with clever, complex lyricism and a powerful instrumental line, which makes sense considering the Dunnville, Ontario musician has been writing and recording music since the late 90’s. With its vulnerable lyrics, Bell’s soft, rollicking tune is something you’ll find yourself coming back to again and again.

“In my writing, I always try to combine a personal experience or experiences with things I’ve witnessed in others. ‘Searching in the Dark,’ the first single from my upcoming album, Division Street, is a little bit about being on the road and a little bit about the journey of life,” Bell explains. “Sometimes being constantly on the move can blue your objectivity, and with the extreme highs come the extreme lows. One can’t really happen without the other.”
