Cedarsmoke Impress With Return Single ‘Let The Wind Blow’

Brisbane’s very own Cedarsmoke have returned with a stunning post-punk-esqe single, Let The Wind Blow. Cramming in some fuzz rock style guitars and lo-fi drumming, it seems like a nostalgic run through a mid-nineties Australian indie-alt jam.

Opening up with some amazing twangy guitars, you’d be forgiven if you thought you were listening to a classic from The Cure. Then, as the drums and vocals kick in, you’re taken back with the originality we’ve come to know from Cedarsmoke.

It’s the lyrics and meaning behind this track that hits you the most. Tackling the topic of being tied down by invisible chains, letting the wind blow and just going where life can take you. Just be. Wowser it’s deep. But that aside, it has a sense of that summertime surf-rock to it. So take the delivery as you will. That’s what music is all about right?!

After two EP releases and a single earlier this year, it’s easy to see that Cedarsmoke is certainly going places. Their creative direction and knack for original style has them leading the pack as far as their sound goes.
