"Walking on the Beach" is a groovy, chill song accompanied by a psychedelic animated music video. This track emanates beachy vibes with a message focused on mental health. Animals for Hands wrote the song with inspiration from the struggles of PTSD, depression, and anxiety, in hopes of it reaching and helping others to find comfort with their own struggles. You can definitely hear that message in the lyrics. The words produce imagery of not having control over your own thoughts and emotions, providing depth and meaning to the song. Combined with funky melodies, "Walking on the Beach" results in a groovy, jazzy tune to let your inner battles drift away. It is a feel-good song that provides an outlet and hope for those who are struggling, and an enjoyable listening experience all around.
