Seattle indie-rockers Minus the Bear are part of the eclectic mix of artists who comprise the album accompanying the video game Injustice: Gods Among Us. Now you can take an exclusive first listen to their contribution, “Walk on Air,” which trades their usual soothing melodies for a harder feel with powerful guitar riffs and propulsive rhythm.
“‘Walk on Air’ fits the superhero vibe oddly well,” singer-guitarist Jake Snider tells Rolling Stone. “It’s about how one partner in a relationship can make the other feel great highs and then turn around and bring crushing lows. An eternal battle.”
Other acts on the Injustice soundtrack include Depeche Mode, MSTRKRFT, Killer Mike and AWOLNATION, the latter of whom premiered a track last week. The game will be out on April 16th, with the companion album due digitally the same day and on CD April 23rd on WaterTower Music.
