Published May 25, 2017After feeling Blessed in the summer of 2015, Walter TV are looking to seize the day with a new long-player titled Carpe Diem. The record is set to arrive on August 4 through Sinderlyn.
Ten tracks in length, Carpe Diem is said to show a band that "has taken their version of lo-fi recording to a near professional level (or at least attempted to)." A taste of the new sounds of Walter TV — which of course features members of Mac DeMarco's band — comes alongside the announcement via the uplifting "Graceland," which you can hear in the player below.
A press release also notes that Carpe Diem deals with the following "classic tropes that no person can seem to escape or avoid (except the enlightened few):
...suffering, loss, death, love, chaos, inevitability, declining conditions of earth, self inflicted spiritual pain, heart attacks, forfeiture of morals, yearning, attempts at doing the right thing, karma (police), moments of clarity, depression, introversion/extroversion, the singularity, technological advancements, neglect, insults of opulence, lack of community and looking out for your fellow people, being paranoid...you get the point!
Carpe Diem is available for pre-order here. Read through the tracklist to hear "Graceland" in the player below.
