Melbourne’s Slow Talk are a rare and unique gem – music of such beauty and craftsmanship comes along only so often – formed by its surroundings and experience. This new alternative two piece, comprised of vocalist James Butler and guitarist Ash Fuller, are brand new to the world, but their music speaks volumes of the wisdom and age and care in their craft beyond their years.
Today, they bring news of their debut release, an EP entitled New Vernacular that will see its release on Friday, April 27th. The announcement of this debut comes with the first taste off the release in the form of the first single, “Golden”. According to Ash, first single “Golden” is “an exploration of our desire for people that physically fit the ideals we look for in a partner, whether they be people we briefly encounter in our daily lives, models we see on Instagram, or celebrities. It discusses our ability to extrapolate the little we know of these people and develop high opinions of them.”
James, vocalist for Slow Talk, attempted to describe the process of writing the music for this EP – “New Vernacular forms a coming-of-age journal, capturing the dire and challenging internal dialogue experienced throughout periods of grief and transformation. The song-writing process was a relentless and cathartic necessity for us, something that is reiterated in the record’s pervading sense of honesty and release.”
