Label: Atlantic On 2019’s debut album ‘Nothing Happens’, LA trio Wallows brought sparkling care-free indie of the now. Uplifting and urgent guitar lines coupled with heartfelt lyricism and even a Clairo collaboration, the formula proved familiar yet with enough zest to seal them as a force to be reckoned with – the whopping five million streams in the release’s first week backed up such sentiment. The LA trio channelled an empty calendar into something positive, taking on a virtual world tour, hanging out with fans online and spending their quarantine making a follow-up EP, ‘Remote’. Wallows aren’t out to re-write the history books of indie, but they’re clearly getting a kick from exploring and pushing the genre into new ground. It’s an EP that offers up both clarity and consistency, serving as yet another reminder that lockdown wasn’t lost on everyone. This is a dizzying and immersive reintroduction of a band on top of their game.
