Hamilton Leithauser – “In The Shallows”

Alexandra” was the first single to be released from former Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser’s forthcoming solo LP, Black Hours. That track will be released as a 7″ single, and today, its B-side has been revealed: “In The Shallows” is similar to its counterpart on the A-side in that it presents Leithauser’s familiar voice in front of a much livelier, more playful sound than the one we associate with the Walkmen. I’d say, though, that if songs of this quality aren’t making the cut, it’s a really good sign for the album as a whole. Listen.

Black Hours is out 6/3 via Ribbon Music.
