Walker & Royce Drop New EP ‘Bodies Do The Talking’ On Dirtybird Records
Just in time for New York City to be overrun by the Dirtybird BBQ at the Brooklyn Mirage tomorrow Sunday, June 17dynamic duo Walker & Royce are back with their first release on the San Francisco label since their critically acclaimed debut album, Self Help, in 2017. theWhile the twosome won’t be at the Mirage in the flesh tomorrow, we have a feeling that their new Bodies Do The Talking EP will get a lot of love from the players who do make it to Brooklyn.
This sweltering two-track offering reminds us of why Walker & Royce have become the house music phenoms that they are. The A-side simmers to live with a deceptively cinematic opening that percolates into an absolutely thumping banger. Rife with lo-fi elements, mesmerizing and outrageous percussion, “Bodies Do The Talking” is an almighty example of these two Dirtybird superstars at their mischievous best. “Uh-Oh” is a faster paced groovy track that closes the EP with gusto. Ideal for sizzling summer dancefloors “Uh-Oh” is a hypnotic thrill ride that will surely be in heavy rotation all season long.
Self Help helped make Walker & Royce a household name; the LP showed off their ability to wield music as a therapeutic agent and enter the crossover sphere with an array of notable vocal collaborations. It’s this widespread appeal that led to the outfit earning coveted spots at Coachella, Lighting in a Bottle, and more marquee appearances throughout 2019.
