Strange Talk Releases Debut EP - Listen to "Eskimo Boy"


Following the success of bands like Phoenix, Friendly Fires and Two Door Cinema Club, Strange Talk is one of the hottest new indie pop acts to keep your eye on this year. The Australian outfit uniquely pairs considerable musical talents from disparate backgrounds – with vocalist/producer Stephen Docker immersed in the classical world a former violinist for the Australian Youth Orchestra and bassist Gerard Sidhu as a regular fixture on the Melbourne DJ circuit crafting banging house beats.

As a group, Strange Talk speaks a musical language that is as diverse, yet as accomplished as their previous experiences. The group is releasing their much-anticipated self-titled EP on the hip Neon Gold label next week.

The disc includes tracks like "Is It Real," "We Can Pretend" and "Climbing Walls," a shimmering synth tune that I posted a while back. One of my favorite tracks on the EP is "Eskimo Boy" that shines as the group's flagship anthem with its churning synths, heavy bassline and a bit of that Down Under electro touch thrown in for good measure. Potent pop. Highly recommended.
