I've released my new Australian summer single 'Jacaranda Sunsets' with my DIY in the backyard film clip featuring a topless air sax solo from yours truly. I hope you enjoy listening to this song, as much as I enjoyed making it and that it also gives you the urge to dance around in the summer sun.

My debut full-length album Íkaros is out NOW.
This record is the most vulnerable expression of the self I have ever been able to articulate permanently. I'm an evolved man for having written this album, and today I'm feeling so proud to officially hand these 12 songs over to you all, both on vinyl and online.
I hope you all find the vulnerable bits of yourself in this record, and I wish you as much fulfilment in soaking up these songs as I have felt creating them.
All my love, Chris.

This week saw the release of a brand new Timberwolf single 'Washed Out'.
The first single from his anticipated debut album was written on the New South Wales Central Coast, and explores death, falling-out and friendship.
"I wrote the lyrics after an intoxicated revelation during a 3am skinny dip at Bondi. I remember feeling blind in the ocean, and it was an invigorating reminder of how beautiful it feels to be truly present. The ocean and the sky had formed one shade of charcoal, and I couldn’t even see the waves until they had already washed over me. That’s where I came up with the expression ‘Washed Out’. I couldn’t help but reflect on the loss of colour in the sky, how it reminds me of death, and a sad fall-out I had with a close-friend of mine in my mid-teens that I've always regretted." - Christopher Panousakis
"I recorded a live version of 'Washed Out' with my band at Village Studios in Adelaide. I'd like to extend the warmest of thanks to the band who kindly offered their time and talents, Matt Birkin, Milush Piochaud, Delia Obst, Logan Watt and Maggie Rutjens. Special thanks also to Gerard Wood for shooting it all on film, as well as the exceptional Luke Hancock for capturing what you're hearing."

'Something That I Said' is out now.
Buy or Stream HERE
Having written and performed all the instruments on the new single - other than drums which were handled by Matt Birkin - Timberwolf co-produced “Something That I Said’’ with Jackson Barclay (Tkay Maidza, Sarah Blasko). Lyrically, "Something That I Said" is unchartered territory for Timberwolf, with the track laid out like a candid conversation. As he explains, “Hopefully "Something That I Said" is the kind of song that encourages people to celebrate feeling imperfect and a little bit shit at making friends and finding lovers, because we're all really awkward and conflicted and anyone who thinks they're not is even more-so.”
2015 was a breakout year for Timberwolf; he independently released his Flux EP (which has since hit over 1 million Spotify plays), performed to sold out crowds & audiences across the country at Groovin’ the Moo, WOMADelaide, Big Pineapple, BIGSOUND and Woodford Folk Festivals, and topped off the year winning Best Songwriter and Best Male Artist at the South Australian Music Awards.
Since then, Timberwolf has been hard at work writing for his forthcoming record, which today sees the release of its first single “Something That I Said”, as premiered via Stereogum & Home and Hosed. After developing, writing & honing his sound for the last year, “Something That I Said” showcases a significant progression from his earlier indie-folk influences to his long standing love for classic musicianship and song writing, taking inspiration from artists like George Harrison, Jeff Buckley and Jeff Lynn.

'Flux' is Timberwolf's first recorded work with a full band and was recorded and co-produced by Mark Myers (formerly of The Middle East) in his Cairns studio. Chris mentions "Mark and I worked together through the whole EP to try and draw on some of the darker and more eerie elements of The Middle East's recordings to highlight songwriting born out of quite a painful experience".
