Earlier this month, when Central Coast outfit Saint Spook dropped their single Patient, we were immediately on board with their infectious indie-surf sounds. The band craft tunes that are simultaneously raucous and fully-formed. Once you dive into their music, we guarantee you’ll quickly get hooked.
Today, the band have unveiled their debut EP Full Moon, and with its release, they continue to establish themselves as purveyors of groove-laden indie gems.
Full Moon, the debut EP from Central Coast four-piece Saint Spook, is finally upon us. If you’re not already listening to this band, it’s definitely time you changed that.
Throughout the new EP’s four-track duration, Saint Spook glide through a concoction of indie-rock, surf, and reggae to deliver a sound that feels at once familiar and fresh. While they cite bands like Joy Division and Arctic Monkeys as influences, their music belongs entirely to themselves.
With Trust Me and Patient (the EP’s two lead singles), we were introduced to the music of Saint Spook. Now, these two tracks frame a well-formed body of work that stands out as one of the year’s best releases thus far. Tired is an upbeat slice of indie-rock while Don’t Miss Me is a more melancholic offering from the band.
As a whole, Full Moon perfectly showcases Saint Spook’s versatility and penchant for creating truly addictive pieces of music.
These are still early days for Saint Spook, but judging by everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more quality tunes.
For now, do yourself a favour and listen to the new track above.
