Self described art-pop duo Thomas Hyland and Charlotte Ivey of Low Talk have released their new single Famous, once again diving head first into the spacey, glittery pop that they’ve always delivered in spades.

Produced by Hyland, mixed by Elliot Taylor and packed with ethereal vocal effects and lilting layers, Famous delivers Hyland’s lyricism in a Morrissey-esque tone upon a shimmering synth foundation.

Lyrically accessible and delivered with a surprising clarity, Famous is a mysterious and alluring new cut from Melbourne’s Low Talk.

A powerhouse creative duo, Ivey diverges from music into painting and Hyland has spent his time in a few bands including the critically acclaimed Ivy St, as well as dabbling in filmmaking. Since starting out they’ve extended their sound to include that of Chris Campbell (Ivy St), Meg Butler (Ninety Nine) and Ben Woolley (Marlon Williams & The Yarra Benders).

A bold and multi faceted act, Low Talk brings together the best in years of musical experience.

Famous is a real mash up of varying sounds, speaking indeed for the greater aesthetic of Low Talk. Professing that their music aims to be textural and experimental, you can expect so see some distorted violin, synth, bass, electric guitar and organic sounds of their own imagining.

Building on a pop foundation, their ethos is a layered and progressive diversion from the direction you think they’re going take.

A real rad addition to effected and spacey electro pop, Low Talk are bringing together the instrumental experiences of many players to form a team of serious merit. For an expressive and lively multi-instrumental immersion, they’re undoubtedly one to watch.

They have their single launch coming up at Melbourne’s Gasometer Hotel on the 21st of July alongside Cool Sounds and Girlatones. With hints of an album fast approaching, this show is sure to be a taste of what we can expect from Low Talk for the next half of 2017.
