OVRLKD: The Walters - I Love You So


It's time for the second OVRLKD post here on the blog because I definitely missed out on something very important last month. Towards the tail end of September a track entitled "I Love You So" was released on bandcamp by 'five regular hunks from Chicago' who called themselves The Walters. I didn't catch on to the musical act until a week or so ago thanks to a friend, but since then I've been hooked like it's nobody's business. A soft intro progressively builds into a full-fledged powerhouse of a song with soothing guitars and drums that help to stabilize the floating lyrics that are melancholic yet charming. Put simply: this song is like candy and I can't get enough, the chorus feels so good that you never want it to stop. With only this one song under their belt at the moment, I can't wait to hear the rest of Songs For Dads when it's released in mid-November via their bandcamp. Hats off to these guys.

Communions - So Long Sun


Danish quartet Communions have come out with a new single that sounds like a long lost track from the 80's indie scene. "So Long Sun" is anthemic and dreamy; growing into a colorful echo chamber of synths, tight guitar riffs, and lofty vocals. These guys know their stuff. Look for the So Long Sun/Love Stands Still single when it's released in November on Tough Love Records.
