Featuring RØRY and Dylan Matthew, SLANDER’s “Walk On Water” is a piano-driven, emotive bass track. It’s a duet performed by RØRY—a U.K. alt rock rising star known for her mesmerizing ethereal voice and Matthew—who sing of determined love and going to great lengths to get to that love with lyrics:

“I would walk on water, I would turn the tide I’m sorry more than anything that I left your side I will raise the echo of all the pain and pride My God, I would do anything to bring us back to life”

“Performing ‘Walk On Water’ at Coachella was a huge moment for us,” shares SLANDER. “We’ve been going to the festival since we were college students at UC Irvine and now to headline the Sahara stage for our first turn play there was just incredible. We’ve wanted to share this track as well as news of our upcoming debut studio album with our fans for a long time and couldn’t have had a better time and place to do so than from the stage of the Sahara. RØRY and Dylan bring so much power and emotion to the song.”

“Walk On Water” follows other SLANDER and Dylan Matthew releases including “Fall Into Me” (with NGHTMRE), “First Time” (with Seven Lions and Dabin) and “Without You” (with KAYZO).
