Yacht Rock, anyone? You won’t find many bands today like this Aussie duo, who demonstrate consummate skill in channelling the ‘70s so-called “yacht rock” sound that features creamy synths, funky guitars and delicious falsettos. The production is just so good! “NITW” (Nothing In This World) is a tasty slice of what these guys can do, an ultra-catchy hook with great instrumentation and infectious falsettos. Though “Malibu” meanders, it has a strong hook and an excellent sax part. The dramatic, downtempo “Penny” has amazing synths. Considering the ongoing popularity of Hall & Oates, in the right situation, Wanderers’ music would completely wow an audience.
