Last I heard from Walrus, they were making delightfully out of tune indie-rock on their Sisters EP. Walrus have made some fidelity improvements to their sound and more importantly upped their experimentation and ambition as well with these new tracks off a split cassette with Sheepman. Walrus’ contribution to the cassette includes the psych-rocker “Sleep” that grows from acoustic strumming to a climactic guitar solo finale and the John Lennon-channeling “Space Tigers”. It’s awesome to see that Walrus are rising to the potential that I thought I heard from their earlier music.
Two brothers based out of Halifax, Walrus are bringing some atmospheric indie-pop vibes on their latest Sisters EP. Walrus’ music lies somewhere in between Deerhunter’s instrumentation and the wailing singing of Clap Your Hands, Say Yeah!. On the track ‘Nothing Left to Say’ these influences come out pretty strong with reverb heavy strumming and great atmospherics. Let’s be honest, the singing isn’t what is going to draw you in about Walrus, it’s everything else that surrounds it that makes Sisters such a good listen. Stream ‘Nothing Left to Say’ below and stream the entire album at their bandcamp…
