New Music: Saturday Sun – Seagull

Rating:

Don’t let his wild looks fool you, this is a tender soul: Saturday Sun’s strong and resonant voice with hints of Damien Rice is pleading and gentle. He uses his full range including high, whispering tones of Bon Iver on ‘I’ve been saving this line for you’; it’s so personal that it’s hard to believe this track is a full band. The song goes from quiet to loud in an instant- it’s so captivating that you fall for it instantaneously. The lustrous guitar has sleek fingerpicking which provides the bare structure for the gorgeous vocals to glide over. This is utterly stunning and intricate- perfect.
