High Five: We're All Young Together by Walter Martin

Each week Kinderling gives a HIGH FIVE to music, artists, albums and other stuff we think is awesome!

Indie rocker Walter Martin surprised us all when his solo career began with a quirky kids album.

Inspired by becoming a parent himself, Walter, who is better known as a member of The Walkmen, began writing music for a far younger audience in 2012 while his band was on hiatus. Two years later he released his debut solo album We’re All Young Together, featuring friends from the indie rock world such as Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Matt Berninger (The National).

Songs about animals, people and places are packed with comical yet clever lyrics and bright musical tones as Walter steps back into the mind of a child to create an album the whole family will love.
