If we’re to talk language, Zulu Winter speak one that is saturated with familiar nuances that will instantly strike a chord with many a mainstream radio listener. Atmospherically decorated, this debut album fizzles and bubbles with the influence of that multi-million-selling, modern day “rock” band commonly known as Coldplay. Though songs such as ‘We Should Be Swimming’ and ‘Silver Tongue’ have the same melodically grandoise swirls of the aforementioned’s recent output, the uncanny similarities extend to singer Will Daunt’s vocals, which share similar inflections to those of Chris Martin’s.

It ultimately makes for a pleasant album, but one of a band failing to reach out and make their own identifiable mark, certifying it as one that may temporarily quell a hunger, but will have the tummy rumbling for something more substantial soon.
