Wintersleep are a Canadian indie rock band from Halifax, Nova Scotia. What started out as a side-project, eventually turned into one of the most popular live shows in Atlantic Canada. Wintersleep came together in 2001 and is composed of Loel Campbell (drums), Paul Murphy (guitar/vocals), Tim D'Eon (guitar/keyboards), Mike Bigelow (keyboards '05-'06/bass guitar), Jon Samuel (keyboards/backing vocals/guitar) and former member Jud Haynes (bass guitar).
Wintersleep are a part of Dependent Music, a music label/collective that began in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia in 1994. They have three CD releases, the first self-titled, the second untitled, and their newest release Welcome to the Night Sky released in October, 2007. Wintersleep have a large and faithful following due to their extensive touring throughout Canada and Europe.
Their music style is rooted in indie rock and has ambient and occasional shoegaze elements. Performances have been described as "entirely honest" and "deeply moving" with "captivating ambiance". While playing live, the band attempts to make the listener as much a part of the music as the band themselves by encouraging everyone to sing along.
They were nominated for two Juno Awards of 2008 and took home one of them: Alternative Album of the Year, and New Group of the Year (which they won).

- LyricsI got out of bed today, Swear to God I couldnt see my face
I got out of bed today staring at a ghost
Who forgot to float away, didnt have all that much to say
Wouldnt even tell me his own name
Whered my body go
- LyricsToxic Emissions
Lost in the distance tense
Link to the senses
- LyricsHold me like a child
In your warm, warm arms
Keep me safe from harm
Oh my sagging skin
- LyricsI found a letter it read
"Our existence has serious side effects"
Turned on, turn on the television
and It's telling me the world is collapsing
I think it's coming and it comes so fast
- LyricsThe archaeologists found
Some winged boy's remains
Stained by the fire and clouds
In the belly of a whale
The day the lightning came
