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” –
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.
