Windwaker examine the aftershocks of love and the changes made in its wake over a soundtrack tilt-a-whirling from moments of insane heaviness to heavenly release. Bubbling up out of Melbourne, Victoria, the Australian quintet— Liam Guinane [vocals] Jesse Crofts [guitar], Indey Salvestro [bass], Chris Lalic [drums, programming], and Connor Robins [synths and samples] —first landed in 2017. They built a growing fan base with independent EPs such as Fade  and Empire . The latter boasted “Colourless” and “My Empire,” which each cracked over 1m Spotify streams. In between selling out headline tours, they joined Beartooth on the road, while I Prevail tapped them for an upcoming 2022 run across Australia with Motionless In White. Along the way, they inked a deal with Fearless Records and wrote, produced, and engineered their full-length debut Love Language by themselves over the course of 2021. After amassing millions of streams independently and building buzz around the world, the band deliver an unpredictable and undeniable exploration of love across 12 tracks. Guitarist Guinane returned to the fold —but is now installed in the role of vocalist — after the release of Love Language, while Robins was added to the lineup. With the new-ish members in place and praise from Distorted Sound, Hysteria, New Noise, Sonic Perspectives, and MXDWN, Windwaker are ready to take the next leap forward.
