The song is taken from their forthcoming album 'Now We Are Timeless', set to be released on July 12 via Merge. Pre-order your copy here.
Speaking about it, the band said: “‘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.””

The follow-up to 2017's Volcano, was recorded in a studio set up in an outbuilding of Bagshaw's house in the midlands of England, and will be out on September 27 via ATO (their first for the label). Pre-order your copy here,
Speaking about the record, the band's Thomas Walmsley, said: "It felt like there was a darker edge to what we were coming up with and we wanted to make sure that carried through the whole record. It's not a 10 track, relentless rock record from start to finish, it's got a lot of light and shade and more tender moments, but that heavier, darker sound is something we wanted to explore further."
Of the lyrics, Bagshaw had this to say: "I'm really proud of 'You're Either On Something' lyrically. On that track, I can hear influences of stuff that I listened to when I was growing up. There's almost a nostalgia to that track, even though it's very forward-looking. Equally, while the words on [album closer] 'Monuments' are a little cryptic, it's very much about the time we live in. I wouldn't say it's a political song but you can't help but write about the things that are happening."

Danish alt rock/pop band Silque have aired their catchy new single "Sometimes When I Look At You I Feels Like Being Punched In The Face (But You Know What? I Really Like That)."
The song is out now, and is about complicated love, friendship and jealousy. It sounds like War On Drugs and Palace Winter but with an upbeat almost manic feel.
