The first glimmer of new material from Reading-based Saltwater Sun has finally fallen from the sky, the band caught our eye with last year’s storming debut EP, ‘Wild’. The new cut see’s the group call for action in full shimmering power-pop glory on ‘Now Or Never’.
Growing from humble gossamer beginnings to a sudden uproar of power-charged guitars and a violent percussive thrash, instantly the ground rules are set. The foundations are rocked and any pre-conceived notions are shattered – all of which, it must be acknowledged spans the culmination of the first 30 seconds of the new sugar-spun rager. This band deliver taut energy and pin-sharp hooks in quick succession, the thrills keep on rolling and Saltwater Sun keep on reminding us why they are such a undeniable pleasure. If this is what 2016 sounds like, then please give us more.
‘Now Or Never’ is available now for streaming and digital download on Apple Music and iTunes. The single acts as a pre-cursor to their forthcoming second EP ‘Flawed’, due out later this summer.
Saltwater Sun will be playing at this year’s Great Escape Festival (May 20th-21st) and Field Day in London (June 12th).
