Listen to Ryley Walker’s New, Melancholy Track, ‘Sweet Satisfaction’
Ryley Walker, one of Chicago's most-talented independent musicians, will release his sophomore album, Primrose Green, on March 31 via Dead Oceans. In preparation, he's shared a new melancholy, bluesy track from the upcoming disc titled "Sweet Satisfaction" -- check it out below.
The chill song is the second song that the singer-songwriter has released from the record, the first of which was its title track, which you can also listen to below. Walker's southern-esque guitar strumming is reminiscent of some of Steve Gunn's work, and his style would pair well next to the Sea and Cake. The track's acoustic intro makes way for a soulful, passionate instrumental which lays the perfect base for the singer to swoon over.
"I can be your love, I can be your sweet satisfaction," he says as the dismal, yet sweet love song opens. He then goes on to sing one of the track's most powerful hooks, "I'd rather be dead then to see you cry."
Primrose Green is available for pre-order now at this location.
