Chrome Heart marks the first release in ten years from The Walls since the ‘Stop the Lights’ album was released in 2012. The band have spent much of the past two years sifting through their recorded archives and compiling an album of rarities and previously unreleased material. An album ‘Stray Sparks’ is due for release later this year.

Chrome Heart describes a sense of emotional detachment and disillusionment with life - a sense of emptiness and unfulfillment. A Chrome Heart is dispassionate and cold. A person is lost in a dark, dank, landscape. They are filled with confusion and unsure of what they seek.

“I’m looking for the light, no I’m looking for love I’m looking for a fight, I’m looking to stir things up”

The signature Walls guitar riffs are there - penetrating and angular over a steady groove. The rhythm section of Rory Doyle and Jon O’Connell on drums and bass respectively showcase the subtle confidence of a band at the height of their powers. The overall effect is a moody one with echoes of Joy Division, The National, The Doors, Interpol. The vocals are sombre and sing of a disillusionment with the world.

“Modern life for the lifeless souls is a wallet full of plastic and a pocket full of holes”

The track was mixed by Rob Kirwan (Hozier; PJ Harvey; Editors)

It’s exactly ten years since the last release from the band. Their third album “Stop the Lights’ was released in 2012 to critical acclaim. Since then drummer Rory Doyle has been touring and recording with Hozier, Jon O’Connell is now an in-demand musician and producer in Co. Clare and the Wall brothers released two new singles and an album with The Stunning. Steve has been focussing on a burgeoning acting career, while Joe is a core part of the BIMM music college team.

HI-LO

THE WALLS

"Their debut, Hi-Lo, has just turned 20 and is a gem of a record. It marked a progression in the duo’s writing, adding some grit, sonic experimentation and lo-fi textures to their innate knack for writing songs bursting with melody. From February’s Gone, to singles Bone Deep, Broken Boy and Some Kind Of A Girl, it’s a record worth diving back
