Strange Talk in LA Oct. 12

Produced by the band in Melbourne, and mixed by Tony Hoffer (The Presets, Phoenix, Beck, Temper Trap) in Los Angeles, ‘Cast Away’ is the perfect musical antidote to the end of the Australian winter. A laid-back cavalcade of synth washes, toms, layered vocals and organic instrumentation, "Cast Away" perfectly showcases Strange Talk’s ambitions to bring together futuristic soundscapes with hook-laden direct songs. Key songwriters and producers, Steve Docker and Gerard Sidhu’s influences (the pomp and clout of Queen, the dream haze of M83) are as diverse as their backgrounds (Steve a classical violinist, Gerard a club DJ).
Strange Talk have already commanded airwaves and online with their previous singles"Climbing Walls", "Eskimo Boy" and "Sexual Lifestyle". They’ve followed this up with key performances at the likes of Falls Festival, Parklife and supports slots for the likes of Kele, Marina & The Diamonds, Foster The People, The Rapture, and Art Vs. Science.
