Published Jul 14, 2011Sam Willis of allez-allez and Banjo or Freakout's Alessia Natalizia have already made quite the name for themselves with their minimal electronic duo Walls. After high-profile remixes for Caribou, Pantha du Prince and the Field, among others, they released their self-titled debut album on Kompakt last year. This fall, Walls will return to the imprint for another LP.
The new album is called Coracle, and a press release predicts that Walls are "set to once again capture the shimmering layers of guitar and synths, ecstatic melodies and emotive vocals that made their debut an instant classic."
Coracle will be released on September 26 in the UK, but it will be preceded by a twelve-inch single for the song "Sunporch," which will be available on August 29. For now, the track can be streamed below.
Walls will also join Battles for select dates on their upcoming tour, including shows in Montreal and Edmonton. All dates are available below.
