‘Sinking’, the new track from Liverpool ensemble Hushtones, is an effervescent and sparkling piece of sunshine: celestial harmonies, chiming guitars and a gravity-defying level of acceleration combine to create a euphoric blast. There is a swinging sixties merry-go-round whirl to the track, liberating, joyous and free wheeling. Duelling, harmonising vocals add to the vaulting chorus. Quite exhilarating:
The track is off the band’s forthcoming album ‘Greetings from the Other Side’ due out on 6 August 2021.
