The atmospheric, decadently stylish electronic pop of Winona may be the brainchild of several Scotsmen, Scott Fraser and Craig Armstrong, the second option an acclaimed and award-winning film composer, perhaps most widely known for his use director Baz Luhrmann. Also a maker and string arranger for famous brands Massive Assault, Madonna, U2, and your pet Shop Children, Armstrong provides released several albums under his very own name. After collaborating on several projects over time, and batting around the thought of making an record by merging their series of classic synthesizers, the set began working jointly in 2006, conference up for some improvisational Friday evening sessions within a Glasgow documenting studio. Although the original concept was to accomplish an instrumental digital album, they ultimately enlisted Manx-born, London-based vocalist/songwriter Lucy Pullin (who also been Armstrong’s supervisor) and French celebrity Laurence Ashley (whom Armstrong fulfilled while focusing on Luc Bresson’s film Kiss from the Dragon) to lead vocals to many of the monitors. Carrying out a 12″ discharge from the trip-hop-styled vocal monitor “Without You” and a 2007 tour (being a quartet) of Western european and Brazilian music celebrations, the design-heavy and inescapably cinematic full-length Rosebud made an appearance in 2008, self-released on Armstrong’s Annalog imprint.
