New Track: "Walls" - Allegra Anka

Allegra Anka (of Cayetana) recently shared Dreams We Talk About, an EP comprised of two new/old songs, which were engineered & co-produced by Matt Schimelfenig (Three Man Cannon). “Walls” warmly blooms in a relaxed, afternoon groove, as a drum machine coaxes a casual, uplifting beat, set off by clean, strolling guitar lines. That optimistic instrumental setting mingles with lyrics that explore reading personal relationships and the complexity of allowing someone in, compared with fortifying yourself.

Indeed, Whiner’s unique blend of genres creates a sound centered on the strength of both not caring and caring too much. If you can’t get enough of their addictive artistry, you’re in luck.
