Walking Shapes
Walking Shapes meld driving guitars, intricate arrangements and visually evocative songwriting into stunning audio refractions on New York’s sonic landscape. Musically, the album's debut single "Woah Tiger” sets the tone for Taka Come On – fast paced, slightly grimy and sexy – with Hoho’s soaring falsetto riding a sonically churning wave, evolving into a primal scream as the verse hits the chorus. If “Woah Tiger” walks a similar path to My Morning Jacket’s Evil Urges, the album itself is so versatile, yet concise, that the band’s influences are hard to pinpoint. While an extensive guitar solo wouldn’t be out
of place on a Black Rebel Motorcycle Club record, the organized chaos of a song like “Winter Fell” could be the bastard child of Syd Barrett’s post-Pink Floyd albums and Kings of Leon’s Because Of The Times. Yet, ultimately, Walking Shapes craft catchy pop songs, reminiscent of the Flaming Lips, such as "Feel Good." Recorded at the No Shame recording studio in Soho, NY, Walking Shapes enlisted producer Gus Oberg to round out the epic, 'Taka Come On.'
