The Australian band Strange Talk has been climbing the Hype Machine charts lately with “Climbing Walls”. They now released a video for their other signature track “Eskimo Boy” of their Strange Talk EP, which was released on Neon Gold on May 2nd. This Strange Talk EP marks Neon Gold's first ever vinyl and CD release (to this point there have only been vinyl Neon Gold releases).
The last few months have seen Strange Talk flex their musical muscle as a live act, honing their show opening for the likes of The Rapture, Neon Indian and Marina and The Diamonds. Strange Talk pair considerable musical talents from disparate backgrounds – with vocalist/producer Stephen Docker immersed in the classical world, playing violin for the Australian Youth Orchestra. Bassist/producer Gerard Sidhu was crafting house and electro as well as a regular fixture on the Melbourne DJ circuit. With inspirations as strong as they are varied, the guys set about months of intense songwriting, setting their targets on a sound as original as it is accomplished.
Coming off like the perfect hybrid of Friendly Fires and Phoenix with a bit of that Down Under electro touch thrown in for good measure, Strange Talk are one of the most polished and exciting new acts to emerge. Fully equipped with an arsenal of stadium-ready anthems, "Climbing Walls" is all shimmering synths, cascading bass surges and expert delay pedal use, while next single "Eskimo Boy" shines as the bands flagship anthem, churning synths and heavy basslines slowly building up to the kind of dancefloor-swallowing breakdown Neon Gold dreams are made of. Elsewhere, "Is It Real" and "We Can Pretend" beg to be blasted with the top down on the open roads of summer as producer Eliot James (Two Door Cinema Club, Bloc Party), earns his 2011 Music Producers' Guild Breakthrough Producer of the Year award with some of his finest work yet.
