Seagull – ‘Trucks Are Sheep’
Seagull is the stage name of Melbourne singer-songwriter Chris Bolton who produces simple but affecting indie folk music. The broad sonic palette of the album’s production adds depth to his songs and elevates their aesthetic above the usual acoustic affair. ‘Trucks Are Sheep’ mixes stereo acoustic guitars and intimate vocals with minimal, ringing keys, a cymbal that occasionally crashes in the distance and subtle injections of guitar squall punctuation.
Seagull recently performed at Falls Festival as winner of the Triple J Unearthed competition. His debut album, Goodbye Weather, is out now and features the outstanding song that won him that festival slot, ‘Dust Storm.’ Definitely a destination for those interested to hear folk music with such diverse arrangements and interesting production.
