Strange Talk – Climbing Walls
It’s always a great start to the day when you accidently stumble upon dope new music from people you’ve never heard of. This happened to me last week when I happened to walk into a store that was playing this tune, it got my feet doing some serious tapping so I just had to ask the shop assistant who it was.
It turns out this tune is from an up and coming Australian group called Strange Talk out of Melbourne. When I first heard this tune I thought their sound was quite Two Door Cinema Club/Phoenix-esque, with an infectious uptempo beat and a catchy hook. The connection was justified upon learning they worked with Two Door Cinema Club producer Elliot James on this single and caught they eye of Neon Gold Records in NYC who are now releasing their album worldwide later this year.
This is their first single Climbing Walls off their self-titled debut EP released last month. Move over Empire of the Sun, there are new Aussie boys in town.
