New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Winona Oak has shared a transfixing video for "Lonely Hearts Club" from her just released debut EP, CLOSURE (Neon Gold / Atlantic Records). The video juxtaposes the highs and lows of a night out and the morning after as Winona sings amidst a sea of lookalikes, flashing back and forth between rushes of euphoria and anxious splendor. Watch it here and read Billboard's premiere.

Following her debut live shows in New York and Toronto last month, Winona will headline POPSHOP in Los Angeles on February 19th at the Moroccan Lounge. Her inaugural US tour, direct support to Oh Wonder, will kick off March 30th in Atlanta and wraps up April 26th in Los Angeles, full dates below. Tickets are on sale now.

Winona first caught the public's attention when she collaborated with The Chainsmokers on their viral hit single "Hope". The song, which was co-written by Winona and features her stunning lead vocals, has amassed over 350 million streams globally. Her debut single "He Don't Love Me" is a paean to finding strength in your own self-worth. The track has been a runaway success, amassing 18 million streams across all platforms to date. Her sophomore single "Break My Broken Heart" followed suit, amassing over 5 million streams across all platforms globally. Both singles are featured on the CLOSURE EP.

Born and raised in the Nordic forests of Sweden on a small crop of land called Sollerön - known as the Island of the Sun - Winona Oak is every bit as enchanting as her origin story. With a childhood spent encountering more animals than people, she grew up a trained horse acrobat and pursued creative expression however she could, writing poetry and songs from a young age. Born into a musical family, Winona sang throughout her youth and began playing violin at 5 years old and piano at 9 years.

After moving to Stockholm to pursue her passion for music, a leap of faith to attend Neon Gold Records' writing retreat in the Nicaraguan jungle in 2017 led her to Australian electronic maestro What So Not. She would go on to co-write his next two singles "Better" and "Stuck In Orbit", eventually stepping into the spotlight as both the writer and featured artist on his 2018 single "Beautiful", which took home the 2019 AIR Award for Best Independent Dance Single at the Australian Independent Music Awards.

In 2018 she also released a cover of "Don't Save Me" from fellow Neon Gold Records signees HAIM for the label's 10 year anniversary compilation: NGX: Ten Years of Neon Gold. The minimal production allows Winona Oak's ethereal voice to shine through, slower than the original and drenched in ethereal melancholy.
