Though they were away for a good while, California’s Imperial Teen are back in a big way. With their new album Now We Are Timeless coming in the middle of July, their upbeat new single “Walkaway” provides plenty of sunshine from a band ready to prove they’re still very much full of life.
The heavy instrumentation that the band employs are at the front of how the song opens up. Multiple vocals give it an almost timeless feel, with an up tempo and plenty of hooks just in how the song plays along. The vocals are earmarked with backing vocals that really give the song more weight. The bass that plays underneath the keys and drums makes for a magical tone, proving that Imperial Teen is returning if not only to show us how indie pop should be crafted.
The single can be streamed on all streaming sites or above, it can be purchased in all online music stores and Now We Are Timeless is available for pre-order directly from Merge Records before its release on July 12. Imperial Teen will perform a small tour beginning July 14 in Denver, CO at Twist & Shout Records until August 03 in Los Angeles, CA at The Echo.
