Over the past several months, Los Angeles indie/ alt-rock trio Wallows have been gaining momentum through a handful of singles released one at a time. After “Pleaser”, which topped KROQ’s Locals Only playlist for two weeks and reached number two on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 Chart, “Sun Tan”, and “Uncomfortable”, the group are back with another new single, and this one is called “Pulling Leaves Off Trees”.
Following a slightly moody intro, “Pulling Leaves Off Trees” is an upbeat song and while it may sound like a breezy summer tune, the lyrics are certainly ready for fall. As our narrator ponders whether it’s worth it to let the one he’s interested in string him along- asking, “What good will it do if I wait?”- a bass line rumbles along below, before it all trails out with wailing guitars in the outro. “Pulling Leaves Off Trees” can be heard at the bottom of the post, and the song is available for stream or download here.
Following a series of successful shows over the summer, Wallows have announced their first headlining tour to take place in early 2018. The tour will begin on January 24 in San Francisco and wrap up on March 12 in Dallas. On March 13, they’ll be co-headlining with Public Access T.V. in Houston before heading to SXSW in Austin. Tickets for all tour dates are on sale now via the band’s website here.
Wallows is Dylan Minnette (lead vocals / guitar), Cole Preston (drums / guitar), and Braeden Lemasters (guitar / vocals). The band have not announced plans for an EP or album, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the band have more to share soon. Follow Substream on Twitter for all updates.
