Moonhead, unmade bed, Melancholia, You Are Water: July Talk goes aquatic with new single “I Am Water,” in which the band grapples with our human nothingness, in a good way!, and finds abundance in the ancient elements. Like all true Scorpios, “I Am Water” is ruled by a vast force of emotion, just as the tide is controlled by the moon. “I Am Water” celebrates moving our bodies, shaking off the angst and worry and feeling good in ourselves for a few solid minutes. We are blood, we are flesh, we are stardust, we are water. When we face the cosmic improbability of it all, we dance.
July Talk continues to rise with purpose and poise. The band stormed in with the flinty rock n’ roll of their debut, followed by the volatile siren songs of Touch, an album of sawtoothed pop + convulsing tension. With Pray For It, their JUNO Award winning third album, July Talk acknowledges the power of vulnerability as a way to begin again. Their churning and fiercely physical performances make spaces hiss and hum, spit and seethe in glorious, artful abandon. The band has also grown in their roles as advocates of an urgent and fundamental music industry recalibration, through curatorial partnerships with festivals and by defining their own parameters for safer spaces at rock shows. July Talk is Leah Fay, Peter Dreimanis, Josh Warburton, Ian Docherty + Danny Miles.
