Walleater Leeds, UK
Some bands spend years searching for their true sound as they strain under the weight of influences, trends or expectations. Other bands just sound naturally comfortable in their own skin. Walleater is one of those bands. Throw whatever tag you want upon the young UK band, Walleater occupies their own space and they do so with a remarkably clear artistic vision. The band has a penchant for melody and suspense, a certain flare for the dramatic build and release. However, this never comes at the expense of the song. Nothing is contrived or forced, every note serves a purpose and every piece of the puzzle fits. And that simplicity, that organic quality, that is where Walleater's sound begins and ends.
Walleater return after their 2015 release, I/II, with two new songs that sound familiar while moving the band into more immediate waters. The band's subtle shifts in sound are effortless and once again it's that simplicity, that clear vision that separates Walleater from their peers. Call it whatever you will, Walleater are operating naturally at their own pace and in their own space.
