Slow Caves – “Walk in the Park”


“Walk in the Park” is a stirring alt-rocker with ’90s nostalgia. The track comes via Slow Caves, a band formed in Fort Collins, Colorado. Vocals and distorted guitars throughout feel like they lounging and stretching out, enjoyably so considering the influences and psych-friendly rock aesthetic. 02:40 shows a fun escalation with whirring guitar addition, reminding of Billy Corgan’s guitar work circa Siamese Dream, with an elongated melodic fervor. The heavy, lingering guitars and enveloping vocals throughout make for a convincing sound.

Slow Caves write: “‘Walk in the Park’ was written while falling in love with a close friend of mine. It was the most dreamy, summer romance. It was also during a realization of the importance of self-love and focusing on mental health. Going on walks is really beneficial to my mental health and so are open and public spaces like parks.”

“Walk in the Park” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2020’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Rock.
