As a music lover of all things new and fresh, I was checking out the many music blogs and stumbled upon the track “Young Rebels” by TW Walsh. After the first deep bass drum kicks of the song, I was hooked. With the mixture of synth sounds and keyboard swashes, this track by Massachusetts born Timothy William Walsh has a retro 80s feel to it that is popular with today’s indie crowd looking for something that stands out from the norm. “Young Rebels” actually reminds me of my youth when I was really into Gary Numan and The Cars.
Working as a songwriter, producer and engineer, TW had his hands on different projects before joining Seattle Indie band, Pedro The Lion back in 2003. He has since provided production assistance from anyone from Sufjan Stevens to Crystal Skulls. After spending 18 months with a mysterious illness he attributed to insomnia and bad dieting, TW Walsh got into Eastern Mysticism which had him thinking of ways of bringing classic music production techniques into today’s modern technology.
This is noticeable on his latest release Fruitless Research out now on indie label, Graveface Records with a collaboration in production duties with Yuuki Matthews who also has worked with Crystal Skulls as well as The Shins.
