myspace band of the week
Talk is Kensei Ogata (guitar, vocal), Yuriko Takahashi (guitar, vocal), Jun Kawamoto (guitar), Hitomi Takakura (keyboard), Shirou Murakami (bass) and Takuma Nishimura (drums). The band formed as a three-piece in March 2009 in Kumamoto. Their debut Waltz For Feebee was self-released in 2011 and sold out quickly. Dead Funny Records re-released it earlier this year with three new tracks. Not only does talk combine shoegaze with catchy twee melodies but also devotes half their debut to solid post-rock tunes.
