Time Traveler is Waltzer's debut full-length album and the end result of years of work by singer-songwriter Sophie Sputnik.
As a former musical theater kid who found her armor fronting Florida punk-rock two-piece Killmama for several years, her songwriting has been informed by everyone from Erykah Badu to Roy Orbison. As such, Time Traveler melds a lifetime's worth of music loving to create a sound that's a little bit rockabilly, a little bit punk, and all of it wrapped up in an undeniably contemporary style. Its sonic contours may be firmly grounded in rock and roll's sweat-drenched history, but its worldview speaks to the worried world we all are trying to survive in.
