Showing no signs of slowing down since their arrival on the scene earlier in the year, Meanjin-based punk / rock outfitÂ Talk HeavyÂ are today unleashing their punch-packing debut EPÂ â€˜Jump Into Nothingâ€™.
After setting the scene with most recent release,Â Mixing Pictures, Talk HeavyÂ are delivering a five-track culmination of their powerhouse sound, wearing their heart on their sleeves without sacrificing on their high-octane punk sound.Â
â€œOur debut EP â€˜Jump Into Nothingâ€™ is a group of songs written over the past year that we feel perfectly represent both where Talk Heavy is and where we want to keep heading,â€Â explains frontman Matt Cochran. â€œI think itâ€™s the most vulnerable Iâ€™ve been lyrically in my time as a songwriter and Iâ€™m excited to keep exploring that even further down the line.â€
Engineered, produced and mixed by lead singer Matt Cochran atÂ Birthday Boy Studios, with mastering by Matthew Gray, â€˜Jump Into Nothingâ€™ is a labour of love that truly sees the band come into their own.
Including mosh-ready singleÂ I Wanna Skate AgainÂ and introspective punk pumperÂ Mixing Pictures, the EP also features three new tracks, kicking things off with the fast-paced cathartic release ofÂ Open The Door, suspenseful trackÂ Something CoolÂ and finally, EP closerÂ Skip To The Good PartÂ providing a vulnerable lesson on recognising the future youâ€™re waiting on is unfolding before you.
â€œWeâ€™re all super proud of these songs. They feel sonically consistent while still individually exploring different moods and song structures,â€Â Matt says.Â â€œConsidering it was all completely DIY as well and self recorded/produced/mixed weâ€™re incredibly stoked.â€
Recently signed with renowned booking agencyÂ New World Artists (Luca Brasi, Grinspoon, Mallrat, British India, JK-47, Sneaky Sound System),Â Talk Heavyâ€™sÂ spirited approach to indie punk / rock is gaining well-deserved recognition on a growing scale.
â€œAfter getting an early listen to some of their upcoming releases, we just HAD to work with them. Weâ€™re incredibly excited to have Talk Heavy join us here at New World Artists and look forward to building a long-term live career with the band,â€Â shared New World Artists agent,Â Liam Saunders.
Drawing from modern North American alternative punk artists, with nostalgicÂ pop-punk / emoÂ at their core,Â Talk HeavyÂ have already built a reputation for delivering riff-rampant belters with the power to stir a mosh pit into a fun-filled frenzy, and withÂ New World ArtistsÂ in their corner, and multiple shows scheduled for the rest of the year, theyâ€™re ready toÂ â€œgig our big ole butts off!â€
