July Talk

Since their 2012 debut record, July Talk have become a staple on modern-rock radio, earning a gold record in Canada and a Juno Award for Alternative Album of the Year, as well as worldwide deals with Island, Polydor overseas. Whether you’re experiencing it in the dingiest basement dive or the biggest festival field, a July Talk show makes you feel like you’re part of some secret-society congregation. It’s a gathering of kindred spirits united by a desire to escape the institutional pressures and LED distractions of our daily lives to reconnect with something real. Their latest release, Touch, is music of the flesh, the sound of hoarse-throat howls, bloodied fingers slashed on the fretboard, and sticky bodies pressed against the barricades.
