Listen to new RODDY BOTTUM music from IMPERIAL TEEN and NASTIE BAND
While FNM stay dormant, Imperial Teen have just released Walkaway their second song from their sixth album Now We Are Timeless, which is due out on July 12th via Merge Records. Walkaway is a return to Imperial Teen's roots and a fun melodic three minutes of dreamy indie pop.
“‘Walkaway’ is a song about a feeling we’ve all known. Watching others, near and far, and feeling distance and separation from what they’re experiencing—feeling connected and independent at the same time. Closing the gap of physical distance and making our lives a more connected place.”
