The New York City-based quintet the Walkmen have cemented their status as one of indie rock's most accomplished and talented acts in the ten years since they released their debut album. Their jagged, post-punk influenced sound has steadily mellowed and expanded, and singer Hamilton Leithauser's songwriting has matured as well.
The band's latest album Heaven, recorded last winter in the Pacific Northwest, bears the fruit of that maturation, finding the band reflecting on the complexities of adulthood over the course of thirteen clever, lovely songs. Currently touring the US in support of that record, the band took some time to stop by The Current studios and chat with Mac Wilson.
