Gaz Coombes has released ‘Walk The Walk’, the second track from his forthcoming album World’s Strongest Man, due for release through Caroline International on 4 May.
Built from a twisted bassline, space-aged gospel vocals, swooping strings and lo-oscillating synths Walk The Walk is a sleek, sinewy and thoroughly addictive mediation on the dangers created by, as Coombes says, all of the “misguided, delusional men that are making the world worse for everyone else” – the unstable men who seem to be in positions of power all over the planet.
The follow up to the well-received ‘Deep Pockets’, Walk the Walk is taken from Gaz Coombes’ third solo album, World’s Strongest Man, recently described in Mojo’s 4-star review as: “continuing proof that the 42 year old Gaz Coombes’ best work is happening in the here and now.”
