Walter TV, “Surf Metal”

Post Author:
Walter TV

Walter TV is comprised of Mac DeMarco’s touring band, sans DeMarco. Their output has been spotty, appearing in various quantities over the past three or so years, including a 2012 full-length Appetite. They specialize in a sort of off-brand DeMarco-psych that ends up being sonically freeing, as evidenced by their new track “Surf Metal”. Quite literally, “Surf Metal” is a version of surf-rock gone loud—not quite to the extent of Metallica metal, per se, but certainly louder than “surf rock” usually indicates. In between the heavy moments, Walter TV shows serious pop-dexterity. Walter TV’s sophomore LP, Blessed, is out June 23 via Sinderlyn Records. You can stream “Surf Metal” below.
