‘Suicide Prevention Hotline’ EP by Alaska in Winter

Alaska in Winter

It’s been a while, but I think it’s been worth the wait. Alaska in Winter, otherwise known as Brandon Bethancourt, has finally released a new EP titled Suicide Prevention Hotline, which sadly, is a fitting title. It seems that Brandon has been having some personal trouble for the last three years, but he seems to be doing a lot better. His music is also sounding really great, it’s exciting to hear something new. My favorite of the bunch is a song called Demons, which is part electronic jam and part baroque lullaby. The style reminds me a bit of older Her Space Holiday, but with a more serious side. The production on these are absolutely beautiful, I highly suggest strapping on your headphones and giving these songs a listen. If you enjoy what you hear I absolutely suggest you support him and buy an album.
