But not the furry, mitteny, leathery varities. We're talking music here people. Winter Gloves were recently named Best New Artist of 2008 by iTunes Canada andf the foursome are ready to descend upon the US with their keyboard-heavy, rhythmically-propulsive pop compositions.

The quartet, who endearingly dub themselves “glock-rock” for their use of the oft-ignored glockenspiel, began as the solo project of Charles F. (lead singer/songwriter/wurlitzer). Charles created the early Winter Gloves recordings that make up the Let Me Drive EP in his own home using a single microphone.

The title track off the EP is one you'll want to hear more than once, so get to getting! Plus, Winter Gloves have done a cover of LCD Soundsytem's Someone Great, which is equally on par to listen to again and again.
