Geowulf // Sunday

Geowulf don’t mess around; it takes all of the first millisecond of their new track Sunday for them to submerge us in a wall of the sort of sepia-tinted nostalgia that Beach House have perfected. The scene they paint in those opening moments doesn’t change, but it doesn’t need to – Sunday is blissfully melancholic, drifting its way through passages that are weightier than the reverb-shrouded guitars suggest at first. Walking that line between the euphoric and the morose is a real skill, and it’s one that Geowulf keep proving that they’re adept at. Given that this is the first indication of their debut album, Great Big Blue, out 16 February on 37 Adventures, we should be very pleased that they seem to be hitting new heights at just the right time.
