Merging grunge and punk elements with modern pop, Brazilian-American artist Talkless is further solidifying his unique sound on his latest track, “Talking To Myself“. Like his first single of 2022, “Mind Games” and even previous releases, “While I’m In It” and “Why”, “Talking To Myself” further showcases Talkess’ ability to merge classic, timeless influences like 80’s punk and early ’00’s rock and grunge with fresh new sounds, all while driving listeners into the darkest and most vulnerable corners of our own psyche. The new track, while upbeat and jangly, is a rather blunt take on people who just don’t care to hear what you have to say.
With “Talking To Myself” out now and more new music on the way soon, we caught up with Talkless to discuss the new song and plans for the future. Listen to “Talking To Myself” now below.
Prelude Press: You kicked off 2022 with the release of your single, “Mind Games” and just released your new track, “Talking To Myself” – what has been the highlight of your year so far? What are you looking forward to in the coming months?
Talkless: Highlight of the year definitely has to be traveling and just making music with the homies and I’m really looking forward to the upcoming shows and finally having my first project coming out.
Your new single, “Talking To Myself”, marks your fourth release as Talkless. Sonically, was there anything you knew you wanted to try or experiment with on this song?
For ‘’Talking to Myself’’ I actually went back to the ‘’While I’m In It’’ and ‘’Why’’ type sounds on those tracks, but I’m super happy with the outcome.
What would you like for listeners to take away from the song?
I don’t even know – if people aren’t listening to you then just stop talking
What are some of your favorite things about the song?
The bass line is really carrying the entire song and I love it! I love the bass on that song so I hope people can relate to that too.
“Talking To Myself” is taken from your upcoming project – is there anything you can tell us about that yet? What are you excited for fans to hear on it?
Super hitters, super upbeat songs, a lot of fun features…definitely a big blend of everything that influences me to new sounds and old ones, with super talented producers and features from artists I enjoy working with…overall, I’m just excited to see what people think of my first project.
What goals did you have in mind when you started working on the new music?
I just wanted to focus more on the energy of the songs, make something people can jump around to. No slow songs!
On top of Talkless, you’re also a tattoo artist as well. Do you find that your different art forms can blend into one another at all? Are there some similarities between the two?
No, very different…I try to keep each of them separately so I can focus on them accordingly.
With “Talking To Myself” out shortly and more new music coming soon, do you have any other big plans for 2022? What can we expect next?
More music videos! I also wanna document the process of making music more, and possibly a small US tour
