Ryley Walker definitely has potential and on his new record, Golden Sings That Have Been Sung (out 8/19 on Dead Oceans) he could just possibly land in our Top 50 of 2016. Following his excellent 2015’s Primrose Green, Walker continues to grow as a songwriter and Golden Sings is said to be a distinctly Chicago record and you can really feel the weight of that city’s influence upon first listen.
The video for his latest single “The Roundabout,” was directed, filmed and edited by Joe Martinez Jr. and is all about the fireworks. The video backs up the Chicago theme and probably will remind many of past 4th holiday celebrations!
