I’m really curious about Tobi Soetan’s marks at York University. He spent hours and hours listening to his fave records in the summer of 2010, including Washed Out and Beach House releases. He was so impressed by all those dream-pop bands and their synthy 80’s sound, that he started writing and producing songs in his brother’s apartment, spending money on synthesizers and keyboards.
From now on, Toronto’s Tobi Soetan will be known under the monniker Western WALK. I’m more than glad to premier his first single “Beyond” from his forthcoming debut album Fade Into Oceans. The 9-track full-length is looking for a release in Q3 this year, and I assure you, it blows! Full tracklisting below the soundcloud-player.
