Naked Walrus‘ name is obviously pretty eye-catching, but its the band’s music that will really have you talking. The Los Angeles alt-rock act has teamed up with Substream to share a brand new single, titled “Minus,” that you’ll likely find yourself singing throughout the weekend and well into the next—not just because of its catchiness, but because of its positive message, too. The track is taken from Naked Walrus’ upcoming EP, titled Simple, that’s set to release on November 11 (pre-orders will be available soon). Listen to the quartet’s infectious new rocker below and let us know what you think.
Speaking to Substream about his band’s newest track, vocalist Dakota Gartner says, “‘Minus’ is a song about overcoming your fears and understanding that good things take time. When I was writing this song I centered it around the idea of me talking with my niece and trying to give her guidance as she entered her life journey. The lyrics throughout address the struggle of overcoming an obstacle and making the decision to trust your gut and do what you feel is right.”
