Walking Bicycles on Live From Studio 10 (aired August 2014)
227 plays

There’s a lot of dissonance and unnerving tension on Walking Bicycles’ new album To Him That Wills The Way. Not surprising, considering the album (first in 5 years) recounts the band’s experiences with separation, longing, captivity and freedom as a result of the incarceration of one of its members. The story is told through singer Jocelyn’s somber droning vocals and the dark menacing atmosphere created by heavy guitar riffs.

Live From Studio 10 airs Tuesdays at 8pm CST on Vocalo 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) and Vocalo.org, and features emerging bands and music artists from Chicago and beyond.
