PRESENTED BY LAUREN POTTER
July Talk hail from Toronto, Canada. The five-piece, who formed in 2012, are completed by guitarist Ian Docherty, bassist Josh Warburton and drummer Danny Miles. The band’s name was inspired by the month the band feel a young person can fall in love, party, experience intense happiness, have incredible sex, forget to sleep, experience intense sadness, and fall out of love all within a moment. having the best times and worst times of their lives all within a summer.
Together, the five write and record, shoot and edit every last second of music and film they put out under the July Talk name. They mine the rich seam of rock and pop culture to create a unique blend, which can only be described as the sound of whiskey-soaked Delta blues meets sinister pop lullabies, to strike a frenzied balance between Americana and dance- floor-filling indie-rock. This sound is augmented by the band’s compelling, noir-ish visual aesthetic.
In March of this year, July Talk were nominated at the Juno Awards (Canada’s equivalent of the Grammys) alongside bands like Arcade Fire. They performed at the gala and gave a glimpse of the combustible, occasionally unhinged, live shows that have sent them from playing sweaty 500 capacity shows to the stages of some of the biggest festivals in Canada in 2014. It's a show that they're about to bring to the Australia for the first time, beginning at Brisbane's BIGSOUND and finishing up with a nifty support spot with Spiderbait in Melbourne.
