Perth based alt-rock five piece are following up their debut single and self-titled EP release with the lush genre-bending experience that is ‘Field of Paradise’. Indigo Walrus are a band that is symbolic of Perth in their interconnectedness, everybody is “someone’s best friend’s cousin’s roommate”. They bring an eclectic array of influences together, combining the structures of indie rock with layers of blues, funk and brass. Indigo Walrus have certainly made a stamp on the alt-rock scene here in Perth.
‘Field of Paradise’ explores the cyclicality of nature, the band draws inspiration from their past, and delves into the idea of being guided by the legacy of creation of those who came before us. Layering uplifting guitars on top of each other creates a rich ambience for their groove to sit in, the drums and bass stay tight and locked in with each other throughout leaving plenty of space for the excellent vocal work.
The track builds slowly into a thundering crescendo that then fades into a beautiful ethereal outro that shows that Indigo Walrus are well aware of how to play with the different textures and timbres of their instruments to great effect.
Recorded and mixed by Tristan Sturmer at Sumo Sound Studios and mastered by Simon Struthers at Forensic Audio, their new single is an exciting sign of things to come from them.
Have a listen below or on any major streaming platform and catch them this Friday at the Aardvark playing alongside Flyball Gov'nor, RIBS, Freehand and Teen Angst. Each act is launching a brand new single!
