Our Review: Windwaker’s Empire is spellbindingly diverse in its sonic trajectory, veering from crushing, monolithic heavy passages to shimmering skyscraper choruses to hip-shaking, funk-laden grooves. Good songwriting underpins it all, as does earnest emotion. This EP is an absolut monster and every drop of hype surrounding this band is thoroughly deserved.
