Track by Track: Talk Show - These People EP

A year on from their inaugural single for YALA! Records, cult fave ‘Fast and Loud’, and London foursome Talk Show are gearing up for another first - their debut EP, ‘These People’, out TODAY (Friday, 27th March) via Council Records. A release that lead singer and guitarist Harrison Swann says was “mostly written whilst on public transport”, it’s inspired by modern living.

STRESS 
With a lot of heart and a larger than life attitude, the track is led by honest and poetic lyrics. It is a fearless exploration into emotion, never shy or self-conscious. The persistent drive from the guitars, bass and drums supports this sentiment, making Stress a total stomper worth breaking a sweat for down in the basement. Nicking Muhammad Ali's phrase... "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee".

ATOMICA
 
'Atomica' is our own twisted dance floor filler, largely inspired by electronica and rave culture. It'll scramble your eggs for you while you dance about the kitchen. With lots of percussion, jagged guitar leads, and a bass line that could feel equally at home on an old 8-bit arcade game, this one's a joy to play. We can't wait for you to hear it.

BANSHEE
 
'Banshee' is our attempt to show a more introspective side to our music and is a homage to 80s darkwave, which is a big part of Talk Show. 'Banshee' begins and closes with a building syncopated section, sending itself around in circles. Imagine if Julia Roberts never came back in Notting Hill… Sensitive souls beware.

PETROLHEAD 

A brutal two-fingered salute to working in hospitality. Written for anyone who needs something to blast out on their daily return to work. 'Petrolhead' is big, loud and proud. So, tighten your laces, grab your big boy pants, and best leave your readers at home.

Taken from the April issue of Dork. Talk Show's EP 'These People' is out 27th March.
