“tried-and-true woozy, '60s-psych grooves … like the soundtrack to a lucid dream” Exclaim!

“a modern evolution of surf rock, with trance-inducing jangly guitar chords, Walrus just might be your next favourite group” CBC Music

“sweet and loose … pulls a lot of tricks from the Beatles’ late-60s psychedelia, but filters it through a 90s-indebted love of six-string heaviness” NOW

“an effortless trance-like repetition blended with the chaos of drug-induced frenzy” The East

As we arrive into a time of tricks, treats, and pumpkin spice everything, Halifax psych-rockers Walrus are celebrating with a seasonal video of their own for “Close My Eyes”, from their latest EP, Goodbye Something, out now on Dan Mangan’s Madic Records.

Directed by Torin Langen, who is known to capture the darker side of things, the video for “Close My Eyes” features monsters, pumpkins, and monster pumpkins. "This project has been a bit of a change of pace from my previous work, in that it's probably the most family-friendly film I've made thus far,” says Langen. “That being said it was really refreshing to create a piece that captured my favourite aspects of the Halloween season, and Walrus' dreamy soundtrack made it a joy to edit. And of course thanks so, so much to my team members Sarah Pugsley, Joe Parente and Delfin Jenn, without whom this wouldn't have been possible."

Currently, Walrus are on tour across Canada, and will continue heading east till the end of the year, making stops at M For Montreal and Nova Scotia Music Week, where they have recently been nominated for a Music Nova Scotia Award for Alternative Recording Of The Year. Full tour dates can be found below.

Walrus spent much of the summer on tour with the likes of Besnard Lakes, Wintersleep, Evening Hymns, Alex Calder, Matt Mays, and Plants & Animals, stopping along the way at Osheaga, Supercrawl, and many more.

Their latest EP, Goodbye Something, channels their inner psychedelia with songs that range from trance to surf. Exclaim! writes that “the band somehow mix gentle, Brian Wilson vocal melodies and orchestrations with out-of-the-blue punk thrash parts that keep listeners guessing. The high, winsome vocals and chiming 12-string Rickenbacker certainly conjured late '60s cloudy folk-pop, but the rest of the band infused the songs with sharp edges.” Their music will adhere to all levels of inebriation or consciousness. Walrus takes you swiftly into a dream you'll find yourself never wanting to wake up from.

Earlier this month, Halifax psych-rockers Walrus were nominated for a Music Nova Scotia Award for Alternative Recording Of The Year, last week they begun their cross Canada tour dates with Billy Moon, and today and are sharing their video for “Feels”.

Recorded by Jeff Miller at The Bus Stop Theatre in Halifax, “we wanted to do our take on an old Grey Whistle Test style video,” says Walrus. The band recorded the video in the middle of a run of shows with Matt Mays, so when filming started they were all in “pretty rough condition the morning of. You’ll notice Justin’s live at the Shore Club t-shirt…”
