"Winter," the first single from the Chicago quartet Maps & Atlases' second album Beware and Be Grateful finds the band merging tuneful songcraft with tight, dense rhythms. "The initial inspiration to write the song 'Winter' came on a freezing cold evening during the Chicago winter," says frontman Dave Davison. "The song contrasts memory and the perspective of winter as a season of possibility and creativity with the bleak, stillness of winter nights in the Midwest." The album won't hit stores until April 17th, but you can download the track for free here.
