WINACHI is set to release their new single, featuring Natalie Wilde, titled ‘For You I’d Kill’ exclusively through Pantofola d’Oro on March 24th.
While we get that signature WINACHI vibe and suave funk swagger, we get a sleeker style throughout as well as a song that totally lends itself to that remix interpretation. Sounds of urban, organic, galactic, funktastic, anything you can think of, we truly get a collection. A collection of sounds and visions in your head made by said sounds.
And, while I’ve always been a mega fan of frontman Liam’s voice (it fits everything WINACHI), we get a beat with meat on the bones. The remixes are all stellar in their own right. Each making a new song out of what is there. Each one totally different and without that remix feel. If you heard on you would think that was the original. Bonus for the fact that Julian Shah-Tayler did one of the remixes. Fanboy gushes here as he is a Jammerzine fav.
While I’m sure you will find a favorite, I guarantee that you will find one. Or four. I do know you will find one new favorite band in WINACHI.

Swaggering northern tenacity spliced with smooth Californian G Funk soul is what makes up the foundation of northern groove machine WINACHI. Since they gravitated towards one another in 2015, the diverse musical background of each band member has helped push WINACHI’s sound into something bone meltingly, ass shakingly unique.
While WINACHI’s songs cover all the usual topics: cultural commentary, pain, mental health and politics – love and positivity is always the outcome. The WINACHI guarantee is that you’ll leave their live show, take off your headphones or switch off the Soundsystem and find the world a little brighter. Their commitment to their craft is radical and you can hear that alongside elements of Funk, Hip Hop, Soul, House, Rock and Psychedelia within their music. WINACHI have toured worldwide with The Charlatans, Happy Mondays, The Sugarhill Gang & The Furious Five and have enjoyed worldwide airplay and press in publications such as L.A Times, L.A Record, Manchester Evening News, KCRW, Billboard China, BBC 6 Music to name a few.
2023 will see the release of WINACHI’s long awaited and much anticipated debut album, with the band splitting their time between their own HQ studio in Warrington and Los Angeles with producer John X at the Earthstar Creation Center.
