Australian quartet Sputnik Sweetheart deliver a cool, casual surfer rock tune inspired by Tim Winton’s coming of age novel ‘Breath’. ‘Rolling’ delivers a big sound for a four piece who project an image of a tight-knit combo with honed musicianship and skill. This has a distinct summer vibe; the singer has a laid-back punky style similar to Healthy Junkies’ Nina Courson.
Swirling guitar sounds contain many different influences, which keeps things interesting. The song has a resounding climax tempered by a cheerful chorus.
‘Rolling’ is hard to offend any music fan and is accessible and pleasing to the ear.
