TIMBERWOLF SHARES NEW SINGLE “ÍKAROS” SINGLE OFF FORTHCOMING DEBUT ALBUM
Rising Aussie singer/songwriter Timberwolf is thrilled to share his new single, “Íkaros.” The track is from his forthcoming debut album, set for release later this year.
LISTEN to “Íkaros”
“Íkaros” introduces a new side to the multi-instrumentalist Timberwolf (Chris Panousakis). While previous cuts “Hold You Up” and “Washed Out” brood deep with their emotive tempos and raw character, “Íkaros” features a crisp and buoyant melody with a charming flute to launch us in. Hooked from the very first chord, Panousakis perpetrates an inspiring arrangement; while dreamy 60s chord progressions and a heavy drumbeat take lead, it’s Panousakis’ hazy, understated vocals that are the true heroes of the track – making it one of Timberwolf’s finest releases.
Of the single Panousakis notes,”This song to me represents the ethos and subtext of the whole forthcoming record, and follows the journey of this one character – Íkaros (which is a Greek translation) – from a life of self-preservation and fear of connection, to embracing vulnerability and trust in new connections with fellow humans, especially in romance” –
Since releasing his Flux EP in 2015, Timberwolf has performed to sold out crowds across Australia, as well as taking out “Best Songwriter”and “Best Male Artist” at the South Australian Music Awards. Last year saw radio success for him in Australia and with the release of his single “Something That I Said” Stereogum said, “he exudes a comfort and confidence that hints at (his upcoming) album being something special.”
Having just wrapped three headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne and his hometown of Adelaide, Timberwolf is putting the final touches on his highly anticipated debut album -parts of which were recorded in the US – that is set for release in October.
“There’s a lot of talk about this young Adelaide-based artist, and with good reason – his lyrics are poignant, his music captivating, his motives pure” – Rolling Stone (Australia)
