We had been waiting for over a year to get this session with Windmill, after last minute complications meant we couldn’t film with them at last year’s Sounds from the Other City Festival. This time round, we weren’t going to let the opportunity slip and managed to film this beautiful session when Windmill graced The Castle for In The City Festival! Genuinely lovely guys! Look out for a special appearance from one of Manchester’s rising stars.

Windmill was born from the hidden four-track recordings of Matthew Thomas Dillon. The buzz surrounding Windmill began in the alternative, underground scene with a ltd 7” release on the highly respected indie label ‘Static Caravan’. This caught the attention of another stellar independent label ‘Melodic Records’ and work began on the debut album. Produced by Dillon himself and Tom Knott, their vision was both unique and spellbinding. The record entitled “Puddle City Racing Lights” was released to unanimous, critical acclaim. “Puddle City Racing Lights” has been embraced by some of the finest independent record labels in the world. Finding homes on Beat records (Japan), Groenland (Germany), Houston Party (Spain) and Friendly Fire Records (North America, Canada). Windmill made a bold entrance into the live music scene in 2007, sharing billings with The National, Patrick Watson, The Smashing Pumpkins, Vampire Weekend and touring with Annie Clark’s St. Vincent. In 2007/2008 Windmill performed sessions for some of the premier international radio stations. Including; Studio Brussel, France-inter, BBC 6 Music and Xfm.
