Hooks and Sunshine From Saltwater Sun
Little is known about Saltwater Sun other than that they’re a London based band that seem to have fallen right out of the sky to give us this lush and appealing track. When you first start this song, you really don’t know what you’ve stumbled upon until you reach the first catchy-as-all-get-out chorus, but those sleek white hot guitars should give you some kind of clue as to what you’re getting into. Once you’ve hit the first chorus, a wash of warmth seems to hit you via your headphones as though the sun has broken through the clouds to grace your day, reminding me somehow of a sunnier Metric. The growling female vocals provide the perfect contrast and compliment to the electric guitars and shimmering percussion. This song puts Saltwater Sun on my to-watch list, and they should find themselves on yours as well.
