On the other end
Swedish rock solo project Winterland releases “Calling Out For You”, a synth-filled, dynamic song with a broad set of influences that include artists like Chris Rea and bands like Fleetwood Mac and The War On Drugs.
Discussing the song, Fredrik Nilsson, the band’s creator, comments, “(I) wanted to write about what it’s like to be on the other side and watching someone go through a hard time and trying to help…”
The song draws an interesting parallelism to Winterland’s previous work, as Fredrik explains, “It’s an answer to the previous song ‘Can You Take Me Home!’”. On the comparison, he adds, “This is what the person on the other side sings… ‘Can You Take Me Home’ is a cry for help and ‘Calling Out For You’ is someone reaching out!”
“Calling Out For You” was entirely written, produced and mixed by Fredrik Nilsson, who recorded the track in his own Winterland studio in November 2022.
A music enthusiast from an early age, Fredrik Nilsson has played with several bands over the years, allowing him to develop a mature sound, which permeated his previous project, the band Waterhill.
Nilsson’s Winterland got signed to Gothenburg-based Rexius Records in 2021. He’s now preparing for the release of “Calling Out For You” on January 20th.
