Toronto-based Famous Underground with former Slik Toxik frontman Nick Walsh recently released a new single “Like An Animal” from their new EP, In My Reflection. Check out the official video below.
Walsh acknowledges that the audience’s tolerance for inauthenticity has singularly focused him on ensuring that he projects his true musical identity into every note of the five songs In My Reflection. “Fans, critics and most people can smell bullshit. As an artist, my job is to make sure I’m comfortable creating and presenting it, ”he says.
While the musical relationship between Walsh and bassist Laurie-Anne Green Green stretches back over two decades, the history of the premiere in music is even wider, having led the award-winning Canadian hard-rock group Slik Toxik. ‘a Juno award. After the band’s demise, Walsh immersed himself in a myriad of endeavors, ranging from owning a recording studio, to working in film and television, and touring North America with Classic Albums Live.
Walsh and Green had worked on projects together in the past and decided in 2011 to form Famous Underground. They released their debut album independently that same year, which was then cleared for worldwide release in 2013. Drawing on a number of classic influences from the world of hard rock and heavy metal, the prison-free approach of Famous Underground Music Reaffirms The Guitar Rock music is far from dead.
“Famous Underground is my passion project. It’s the music that comes from my soul, ”says Walsh. “I’m grateful that the group shares my vision and eventually makes it their own – that’s what I call real.”
After releasing a digital single in 2017, the band, which also includes guitarist Darren Boyd and drummer Desche Sparboom, amassed 14 songs for a full album originally slated for release in 2020. Unsurprisingly, the pandemic has disrupted these plans send Walsh and Green back to the drawing board in some ways. After all, the dynamic singer has a unique perspective on the music industry, having cut his teeth on the “old” model of record companies being the custodians of success, through disruptors like Napster and file sharing. , until our days. music on demand.
“It’s amazing how technology is changing the industry so quickly,” says Walsh. “It is so important to stay on top of the changing landscape. We wanted to make sure we were releasing this new music the right way, rather than dropping the 14 songs without fanfare. “
In the My Reflection song list:
“The dark of two”
“Until the end”
“Like an animal”
“The dark of two”
One of the most notable facets that time has brought to Famous Underground is a sense of maturity and life experience. While these facets of life may have been lacking during his tenure at Slik Toxik – through no one’s fault – Walsh seizes the opportunity to gain valuable insights and insights over the past 30 years. It gave him a worldview that couldn’t be artificially manifested. There is a polished and intense rawness to the songs featured on In My Reflection that is both similar and different from anything Walsh has done in the past. However, he may not have reached this critical point in his career without the benefit of the experiences he has had.
“At the very beginning of Slik Toxik, we were singing about reaching for the copper ring, women and the party; all pretty typical stuff for guys in their late teens and early twenties, ”says Walsh. “I couldn’t get away writing about this shit now. I am more interested in writing about the world around me and the human condition; internal struggles; duality; and the world around us. I strongly believe in the whole of yin / yang and the importance of finding a balance in the world.
