“Long, languid stretches of spacey meanderings eventually wind themselves up into tight knots that beg to be undone, to be free again… Walrus bring about a magnificent explosion of noise and heat.” // CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
“…thumping, synthing wonder… mixes the best influences of the genre with the band’s own studio experimentation” (4/5) // STEREOGUM
“The band somehow mix gentle, Brian Wilson vocal melodies and orchestrations with out-of-the- blue punk thrash parts that keep listeners guessing. The high, winsome vocals and chiming 12- string Rickenbacker certainly conjured late ’60s cloudy folk-pop, but the rest of the band infused the songs with sharp edges. Some of it recalled the Sadies, and the musicians in Walrus are certainly in the same league.” // EXCLAIM!
“Best bet for an acid flashback” // NOW
“Pristine, fuzzed-up jams” // CLRVYNT
Walrus are here to play for the sake of the song. The Halifax based band’s debut LP, Family Hangover, is a fuzzed-out electric blanket of soul with a few unrepentant strands of authentic heaviosity. Extensive studio experimentation can be heard throughout the sonically unique record, from varispeed warble to Spacemen-3 style saucer drone-attacks. Live, their low-key manner belies a depth and dedication to the craft. This band could be thrown on a bill betwixt Love and Sabbath and not embarrass the present.
