Walking Bicycles – “Impending Doom” (Stereogum Premiere)
Chicago’s Walking Bicycles play doomy, booming rock music that sounds like a medical emergency crossed with an existential crisis. “Impending Doom,” from their upcoming To Him That Wills The Way, might inflict that sort of physical and psychic damage on those in its path. Almost as impressive as its sheer power, though, is its concision; contrary to this breed of bombast’s stretched-out tendencies, the song gets in and out in under three minutes. Immerse yourself in it below.
To Him That Wills The Way is out 8/12 through Highwheel.
