When we last saw Strange Talk here in SF May 2014 they were a four piece indie-synth-rock act, riding a big wave of publicity after having their single “Young Hearts” pushed to millions of Snapchat users around the world. But one hit doesn’t make a band a success, and they were savvy enough to evolve their music and act.
Their story is familiar to anyone who knows the music industry and the factory atmosphere around many up-and-coming groups. Two guys who love to make music, but who get lost in the world label pressure, management and constant touring. I highly recommend you read about their journey as told to Tone Deaf.
On Friday October 16th we get our first taste of the duo as they emerge leaner, dance-ier and perhaps even stranger. The shift allows frontmen Stephen Docker and Gerard Sidhu to focus more on songwriting and production. While I will miss the live instrumentation, I haven’t been able to stop listening to the new E.V.O.L.U.T.I.O.N EP since I got an early listen last month.
Today we get another new taste of the EP with “Jive.” This is a banger, and really demonstrates how far the group has come. The track has more in common with Justice than anything on 2014’s Cast Away. Check it out below:
