Slow Talk is a new alternative two-piece hailing from Melbourne, with James Butler on vocal duties and Ash Fuller on guitar. The guys may be bringing brand new music to the world but what they’ve created speaks volumes of the wisdom and care in their craft, beyond their years.

Just last week they announced the release of their debut EP entitled New Vernacular, which drops on Friday 27th of April. The guys have also recently released the first single ‘Golden.’ According to Ash, ‘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.”

The guys have been writing in tandem since 2014, sharing a love for emotionally expressive music and progressive song writing. They’re influenced by bands like Citizen, Circa Survive, Gleemer, Emarosa, and Turnover—and on a composition level, inspired by bands like Gang of Youths, Bon Iver, and The National. Slow Talk’s DIY approach has seen the pair oversee not only the musical production of their songs but the construction of the band’s visual and auxiliary content as well.

Slow Talk’s EP New Vernacular will be released on Friday 27th April.

You can pre-order the EP via iTunes, Google Play and Bandcamp.
