Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear. If you enjoy the track, please share it, so we can keep on talking about great new music!
Hideaway - Geowulf
It's the dead of winter here, and today I thought it would be a nice change to reach out for something that has a bit more of a warm, summer vibe for the Daily Song Drop, and I found the perfect track from London-based indie "beach pop" duo Geowulf and their latest single "Hideaway".
Check out the track below:
The first thing that is going to strike you when you hear "Hideaway" is the great use of fuzzed out guitars to set the perfectly mellow, but warm, atmosphere which is only accentuated as the layers get added onto the track, including the blissed-out vocals. By the time you get to the chorus of "Hideaway", if you are not feeling that little bet better (or at least a little bit warmer) then I don't know what to tell you--Geowulf have one of the first, great feel-good tracks of 2018 here.
The best news I can give you, if you enjoy "Hideaway" is that Geowulf's debut album Great Big Blue is due to release on February 16, so you will not have to wait long to get a healthy dose of wonderful beach pop.
...though if you just cannot wait, be sure to check out the brightest song about regrets you'll ever here in "Drink Too Much", or "Saltwater" the super-chill track that helped Geowulf burst onto the indie scene.
For the first time ever on theguysfrom.com, here is the December Apple Music Playlist, and the December '17 Spotify Playlist! I decided that, rather than making myself crazy with a hybrid list between the two months (and thanks to the fact that I did a feature-full month) I would put this one together, which just means that the January playlist will be a tad shorter than most thanks to the TGF Top 50 Songs of 2017 (with the in countdown order Apple Music TGF Top 50 Songs of 2017 as Well as the Spotify TGF Top 50 Songs of 2017 playlists here)
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or search for theguysfrom on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
