We've been patiently awaiting the new single and video from Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys to be released on July 22, but it turns out our steamcrunk favorites have made the song available on their Bandcamp early! "Keep My Head" sees the Army of Toys going where we never thought we'd see them: The world of the mainstream! Of course mainstream is relative, but this is by far their most accessible single to date. It starts off as an almost classical piece before the rock kicks in. "Keep My Head" lives in the world of straightforward alt-rock and posibly even adult contemporary... but through their very own filter. It's just the perfect balance of weird and mainstream that if this was the late 90's and/or modern rock radio was still a thing, this could almost be guaranteed to be a surprise hit. But in 2023, we'll have to rely on word of mouth to get this the attention it deserves.
You can listen to "Keep My Head" below. The video will be unveiled at The Sinclair on July 22 on a sick quadruple bill that also includes blog favorites Sapling, Astral Bitch, and Dropbear.
