The Walk Off
is the result of a process as old as time itself: a few friends getting together in the same room to make some noise. As has been the case throughout the history of pop music, these three well-dressed boys with immaculate haircuts happened to enjoy the noise they made, and the Walk Off was born. Their sound falls under the wide umbrella of alternative indie rock, although they don't exactly sound like your typical indie band. The band members chose to forsake the synth-driven, ambient sound prevalent in the genre and instead bring things back to the basics, resulting in music that's stripped-down by modern standards. Characterized by beefy guitars, groovy bass lines, and heavy drums, the Walk Off operates based upon the belief that creativity is only limited by the confines of one's imagination.
