Talk Show: Stress

Bursting out with a lot of momentum, South East London based band, Talk Show, are gearing up for the release of their debut EP, These People, expected out March 27th, 2020 on Council Records, and the very vibrant and tense, Stress, is the latest piece revealed off it.

Stress displays the band's own kind of straightforward, unpretentious and dark-tinged post punk which also feels very experiential and easy to associate.

"When writing Stress it instantly felt like a song with a lot of heart and a larger than life attitude," says vocalist and guitarist, Harrison Swann. "It’s a song about modern love with its emotions and lyrics, worn proudly on its sleeves. Instantly it felt natural to play Stress as large and as loud as we possibly could. Musically we wanted to compliment the forthright nature of the lyrics with a grandiose rhythm section. We tried to juxtapose the negative connotations of the song’s title, with music that was bold and had a lot of attitude, not something that was insular or timid. The first time we ever played that song, I remember it feeling like it had a life of it’s own, it really wanted to burst out of the basement we were in.​"

Also gaining traction for their live act. Talk Show have toured so far with Fontaines DC, Black Country, New Road, Squid, Fat White Family, Pip Blom and The Murder Capital, and have a series of headline UK tour dates coming up in April.
