Review - Winston Surfshirt

pepper - October


 

WINSTON SURFSHIRT HAVE  drip fed us slices of tasty tunes since 2014 when the musical collective cut their teeth in the Sydney underground scene, and now they’ve served up the whole dish with their debut album, Sponge Cake.
 
But forget morning tea and cake.
 
You’ll need to set the dinner table and get the mojito glasses out because this steamy album will take you to a new house party every three minutes with its healthy dose of soul, jazz and hip-hop infused with kooky humour to boot.
 
It’s the ultimate summer soundtrack with dreamy riffs framed ever-so smoothly with hushed vocals and dusted off with retro-inspired RnB brass riffs.
 
Heavily injected with throwback-style tunes, you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who can resist grooving to the cool, buttery tunes of Sponge Cake.
 
Just as the name predicts, this album is full of soulful flavour, silky bass and delicious hip-hop with sprinkles of rap.
 
It’s the kind of soundtrack that leads to day drinking in the backyard.
 
So, fill up the Esky and crack into some Sponge Cake.
 
Available at iTunes for $14.99.
