WATCH // Ryley Walker Shares “The Roundabout” Video

Feeling a little sluggish? That mid-week slump hitting you square in the jaw? Well, we’re here to give you a bit of an escape. Not us, but rather Ryley Walker! Today he’s unveiled the video for his latest single “The Roundabout”, directed, filmed and edited by Joe Martinez Jr. and taken from his upcoming album Golden Sings that Have Been Sung, out August 19 on Dead Oceans. When asked about the video’s content, Ryley explains,

“Fourth of July in Pilsen is the height of summer in Chicago.” He goes on, “Dozens of crews with ad hoc explosives and a beer in hand make for a blitzkrieg celebration. I lived at 21st/Leavitt some years back and got to know this evening first hand very well. Forever my favorite part of summer in the city. This video hopefully captures a few of those moments of joy from the people involved.”

So dig out those fireworks you’ve got left over and press play on Ryley Walker’s latest clip. If you haven’t already, you can claim your copy of Ryley Walker’s Golden Sings That Have Been Sung via: Dead Oceans (that’s us), iTunes, Amazon, or your local indie shop!

Catch Ryley on tour this fall! (No seriously, he’s playing every city so please come say hi.)
