Listen: The Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser shares new song “In The Shallows”

on May 07, 2014, 11:55am

On June 3rd, former Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser will release his solo debut, Black Hours, through Ribbon Music. We’ve heard its lead single, “Alexandra”; now comes its accompanying B-side entitled “In The Shallows”.

Buoyed by vibrant percussion seemingly sourced from a faraway, tropical paradise, the track finds Leithauser crooning and grooving more playfully than ever. Given that we’re used to The Walkmen’s more grand, sweeping, and somber numbers, “In The Shallows” is a welcomed change of pace and tone. Listen in below.

“In The Shallows” is taken from Leithauser’s “Alexandra” 7-inch, available for purchase now.
