Whisperhawk must have heard about my affinity for jangle pop guitars when he composed his astounding new Alt Rock single Summer Song. If you’re a fan of bands such as the Vaccines, Strokes, the Killers or the Kooks I can guarantee you will adore Whisperhawk with their anthemically veracious approach to melodic, guitar-driven Indie. The angular guitar hooks resonate with the slightly melancholically tinged lyrics, but at heart, summer songs packs all of the Machiavellian romantic vibes you could hope from an Indie summer single.
The genius behind the captivating new single lies in the mind of Salt Lake City, US based singer songwriter Michael Gross, formerly a member of The Statuettes, yet, it’s perceptible that through his solo venture with Whisperhawk, he’s truly stamped down his iconic style and ability to create some of the most immersive guitar melodies. Now I’m a little bit excited to hear what Michael has in the pipeline with his solo career. Summer Song has definitely caught my attention.
