Having made waves with their debut release Habit On My Mind earlier in the year, Saltwater Sun have announced the follow-up, Making Eyes. Both tracks, along with the title track, feature on the band’s debut EP, Wild, set for release this Autumn.
Swapping out the blistering guitar that hits you right from the start of Habit On My Mind for a more measured groove that somehow, weirdly, reminds me of The Cardigans until it switches and starts out-Foals-ing Foals shows that Saltwater Sun have the potential to be all sorts of amazing in the near future.
Making Eyes was produced by Saltwater Sun and Gengahr album collaborator James Bragg. Saltwater Sun are: Jennifer (vocals), Dan (guitar), Ben (drums), Rob (bass) and Joel (guitar)
