Now Playing: The Duke of Surl – The Walk [Garage Power-Pop]

Only five months after releasing a strong and exhilarating debut record, King Pizza Records’ The Duke of Surl is back with a new track just in time to perfectly soundtrack your final sweltering weeks of summer.

You can just feel the late summer humidity in the song’s Sun Records-esque echo treated vocals and melancholic throbbing guitar work. Sticking to a slower, funkier groove than the tracks on Ham Radio, in The Duke’s own words, “The Walk” is some great “summer baby making music.” The track sways and saunters like a wine-drunk couple on an empty beach, just after dark.

Before the summer’s gone, be sure to give this new single several listens.
