Gaz Coombes has released the second track from his forthcoming album World’s Strongest Man. Built from a twisted bassline, space-aged gospel vocals, swooping strings and lo-oscillating synths Walk the Walk is a sleek, sinewy and thoroughly addictive mediation on the dangers created by, as Gaz says, all of the “misguided, delusional men that are making the world worse for everyone else” – the unstable men who seem to be in positions of power all over the planet.
The follow up to Deep Pockets, Walk the Walk is taken from Gaz’s third solo album, World’s Strongest Man, described by Mojo as, “continuing proof that the 42 year old Gaz Coombes’ best work is happening in the here and now” (4*).
