TalkMore wrap up 2020 with the release of ‘King Street’
It’s so easy to fall in love with a song when you know exactly where it came from. It’s even easier when it sounds as good as ‘King Street‘ by TalkMore.
We’re pinning our flags firmly to a band who’ve probably grown more than most during 2020. It’s not just through their evolution of sound, or shedding their skin of former set lists or even growing in members – it’s the sheer velocity of King Street being a fully fledged, stand alone anthem all the while knowing this is barely even the tip of the iceberg for TalkMore.
The first single from their forthcoming EP, King Street is a reflective track for TM about crawling on your hands and knees out of a situation that holds enough power to crush you if you give up and let it win.
But you’re not made of that. You never were, and it’s taken a long time and a lot of heartache to come out of the other side with a stronger character and a banging track to match.
There’s a bigger look at the greater good and that universal feeling of not going back to something just because at one point it was the only thing you wanted. None of us – the band, the listener – are the same person we were at the start of the year.
We’ve missed music from this band so very, very much. We miss the whole York scene and it’s not-quite-so-heavy shoegaze persona where if you’re making music, you’re making music, kid. We’re taking King Street as a cheeky wink inviting us back to the way music used to be – and we can’t wait to be back into it.
Music loving Geordie with a soft spot for cassettes and vinyl.
If you’re in an unsigned band, I’m probably your biggest fan.
Mid-twenties (so, 100 in gig-going years).
