 Love Language, is the debut album from Melbourne's Windwaker.

Born of the streaming era, "Beautiful", the first single released from the album kicks Love Language off in digital fashion — meshing fuzzy electronic tones with heavily distorted guitars. Through the use of samples and loops, "Beautiful" projects a non-purist sound and pushes us into the new age.

'Beautiful' paints an outline of the modern world," the band shares. "The good, the bad, the ugly. The left, the right. The saints, the criminals. The systematic zombies, the fearless. The overall subject of the song allows listeners to level shortly, before digesting the rest of the album, to consider how it would feel to be someone or something else in what is obviously very much a chaotic world to exist in right now. 'Beautiful' boldly juxtaposes the reality of those of different socio-economic backgrounds based on circumstances relating to trauma, addiction, crime and beyond."

Overall, Love Language marries a multitude of tones and textures. It throws listeners into the dynamic deep end, chaotically dancing across a wide spectrum of sound. With intense moments of fire and ice, it's delightfully edgy.

"The record sees themes of adolescence, identity, belonging, nostalgia, mindfulness, death, altered consciousness; displays typical traits of a concept album, but is left very much open-ended lyrically in its ambiguous, open-book type format," the band explains. "Love Language defines fear and love as fleeting moments, encouraging listeners to take an intuitive leap in all situations, confront themselves and their surroundings, never taking a moment presented for granted. In a balance of chaos vs. control, we manifest, and must take all things as they come, operating with the best intent. We are alive. We are breathing. We are fear and we are love."
