Winston Surfshirt has proven to be one Australia’s most impressive and talented bands to grace the music scene in 2017. They’ve had an amazing year with their hit singles ‘Be About You’ and ‘Ali D’, a stand out performance of ‘Like A Version’ on Triple J and being featured on Beats 1 radio show with Elton John. Our resident reviewer, Christian Kafritsas gave the new album 'Sponge Cake' a review!
Now the Sydney funk-soul brothers have released their debut album ‘Sponge Cake’, this is a record you want in your playlist immediately. The album has received a huge response since it’s release, named as Triple J’s Feature Album and reaching #5 on the Australian Aria Albums Chart.
From start to finish this debut album is consistent with the distinct Winston Surfshirt sound, there is no shortage of Funk, Soul or Hip-Hop. The layering of a rhythmic drumbeat, a bass groove, smooth keys and Winston’s gentle vocals makes each track simply irresistible. If you’re a fan of their singles then you’re in luck because this record does not disappoint. Personal favourites include ‘Nowhere’, ‘Be About You’ and ‘The Moments’.
‘Sponge Cake’ is an exciting debut album for Winston Surfshirt and their talent has not gone unrecognised due to the high demand of their national tour. This record is a stand out for Australian music in 2017 and expect the album to bring big things for the Sydney band in the near future.
