What a year 2010 was for Walls.. not content with signing to the prestigious Kompakt label, the shimmering shoegaze electronica of their debut self titled album went on to receive glowing critical acclaim including Mojo's coveted Electronic Album Of The Year (beating out Caribou, Matthew Dear and LCD Soundsystem no less), 4/5 in The Guardian, 9/10 in NME (as well as featuring in their albums of the year), iDJ, Vice and more superlatives from Groove, DJ mag and a host of blogs and websites. In addition to being a big hit with the critics, Walls debut was also a favourite amongst their peers - Jamie XX, James Holden (included them on his DJ Kicks), Caribou (asked them to remix his track Kaili as well as support him at his triumphant Shepherd's Bush Empire show), The Field (asked them to remix his track 'Leave It' and support him), Pantha Du Prince (who asked them to remix his track w/ Panda Bear 'Stick To My Side'). Walls are once again getting set to frazzle minds and make hearts swoon with the release of their second album 'Coracle' (26th September) - set to once again capture the shimmering layers of guitar and synths, ecstatic melodies and emotive vocals that made their debut an instant classic. Their first single 'Sunporch' (out 29th August) reinforces the ground they explored with last year's 'Gaberdine', a towering arpeggiated bass line surrounded by a swirling web of guitars and percussion. Alongside an exclusive edit of 'Sunporch' and an unreleased ambient crooner, 'Tight Spots' this is an essential followup that will leave you starved for what awaits within 'Coracle'.
