Premiere: Sandcastles

“Sandcastles” by Koalas

UK based indie-pop duo Koalas comes to Wolf in a Suit for the first time and they sure leave a mark with the visuals and sounds of “Sandcastles”. The talented pair explore the frail nature of our existence and instead of looking at it from a sad and dishearted view, they find the magic and the beauty in it. They invite us to take a look at life and wonder what we would do in our final ours and it personally made me wonder, “why should I wait for my final hours?”. There’s so much to see, touch, taste and more around our world that we might as well start enjoying it as best we can and explore it a bit more for there’s more to life than just us and there are many unexplored routes simply waiting. Enjoy!

Sandcastles started out as a reaction to a particularly bleak news day, I remember looking at the headlines all lined up and it felt like everything was just unraveling in real time. The song is about that disconnect between how normal every day life feels in comparison to the surreal, disturbing world events going on around us that push the doomsday clock ever closer to midnight. The track combines these two dissonant feelings; on the surface the joy and introspection of a summer getaway that operates as a metaphor for what we might do in our final hours in the event of a nuclear warning.Sam of Koalas
