Sounds x Review: Geowulf // Saltwater

Geowulf are comprised of long-term friends Toma and Star, hailing from a quaint coastal town close to Brisbane, Australia. Now, Geowulf resides in the ever-awake realms of London and they have indeed burst onto the scene.

With a voice that sounds like velvet feels, vocalist, Star, enjoys using the medium of songwriting to detail her – so far – an excitingly nomadic way of life. This makes way for an exciting and personable edge within their lyricism. The shoegaze duo successfully stepped onto the music scene by securing a signing after their first ever gig. The rising pair have also just performed a handful of shows at the iconic SXSW, with a consistently chaotic year ahead.

“Saltwater” is one of the first tracks Geowulf has showcased, and it’s the dreamiest four minutes there could be. Laced throughout this laidback but intricately written track is clear influence from the greats such as Mazzy Star and Fleetwood Mac. As the beautifully lazy opening riff sets the scene, it’s hard to not pine for a beach setting, with the soft waves lapping with every beat. Star’s vocals ripple and glimmer throughout verse and chorus, and the instrumentation makes for an idyllic sound that will consistently assist your spring and summer nights.
