The Atom Age - "Walk Through Walls"

Oakland's The Atom Age have been around since 2009, and are set to release a new album later this summer. Their latest single, "Walk Through Walls," would have been right at home in the early 2000's garage rock revival, but they have their very own sound all to themselves. "Walk Through Walls" shares the same frenetic energy of the early, less pop years of The Hives. This is possibly because of the just barely tuneful screamed vocals common in "Walk Through Walls." But what makes them unique is how they embrace the organ/keyboard sound of vintage classic rock that their contemporaries just never did. Plus, they also bring in more than a tiny bit of surf rock, bringing the whole thing into a vintage sound without sounding fully like a throwback.

You can watch the video for "Walk Through Walls" below. Cry Til' You Die, the new album from The Atom Age, will be out August 23 on Tiger Dream/Asian Man Records. For more on The Atom Age, be sure to check them out on Facebook and Bandcamp.
