Sleep White Winter was a duo from San Diego, California, United States. The band formed in late 2011 and a month later released their debut self recorded/produced EP. The duo consists of Gabe Gomez (guitars, piano) and Bradley Tiffin (guitars, bass, piano, harsh vocals, drums). The teenage post black metal band has a wide variety of influences, ranging from the beautiful dream like melodies of shoe-gazing, to the pure blissfulness of post rock, to the teeth grinding fast tempos of black metal. Similarities are most notably seen in bands like Alcest, Wolves in the Throne Room, Amesoeurs.
