LA-based indie-pop quintet Talk Time have shared a new single titled “Desperate Weather,” available for streaming & purchase now on Spotify, Apple Music, and iTunes. 

Talk Time was created from scratch in a warehouse in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles. They channeled their love for catchy yet experimental pop resulting in an exciting lush sound that filters their influences through laid back Californian sensibilities. The band’s debut EP – engineered and co-produced by Math Bishop (Jacknife Lee, U2, Two Door Cinema Club, The Killers, Silversun Pickups) – will be released in the not-so-distant future. It has been described by many as a blend of 80s synth and modern day indie pop, combining the musical prowess of Sting and Tears for Fears with St. Lucia and Neon Indian.

“I’ve always thought people are interconnected,” explains vocalist Edson Choi on the new single “Desperate Weather.” “The more I live and learn about our world, the more I’m convinced it’s not just people–but the universe is a fabric that is all connected, entities that are part of bigger entities–life on this planet, the stars and beyond–we’re all part of the same thing (kind of like the ending to Men in Black). So that’s why when I was addicted to hate-watching cable news for a while, I almost lost my marbles. All of them. It’s not just the negativity, it was the powerful talking heads squabbled overthe wrong thing (not unlike the White Walker problem in Game of Thrones). This song came out of that period, and writing it actually gave me a mantra to use when I feel bummed out by our modern maladies: ‘keep me strange and awake in this ocean of cells…we all need some help, there’ll be no one else,’ which are the bridge lyrics on this song. I especially like the last part of that because it implies taking responsibility for what you can be better about, and push forward your own evolution as a better human.”

Talk Time will support Los Colognes at The Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles on August 30th – tickets and show information can be found HERE
