“Cold House” is the new single from London based four piece, Talk Show and arrives with the announcement of the group’s second EP “Touch the Ground”, set for release on September 23rd, 2022, via Missing Piece Records.
Produced by Joe Goddard and Al Doyle (Hot Chip) in their Hackney studio, the six-track collection is the sound of a band who have stopped, re-evaluated, and emerged as one of the most exciting and unique prospects around. The single’s accompanying video offers a glimpse at the bands’ unmissable and high-octane live show, more akin to a rave than a gig.
Watch the video for “Cold House” below.
Two years of stop- start frustration thanks to Coronavirus lead Talk Show into taking the radical decision to scrap the music they’d already spent a year writing and take a new direction. The band expanded their musical horizons and inspirations beyond the new wave and post punk that had shaped the tracks on debut EP “These People”, delving into old soul records, electronic music, DJ sets on Boiler Room, MF Doom, the Beastie Boys and perhaps most importantly, the sort of 90s dance music made by the Chemical Brothers and Underworld.
Raucous, visceral and with an irresistible, dance heavy beat inspired by The Rapture’s House of Jealous Lovers, “Cold House” and its accompanying video provide a perfect taste of what is to come from the EP; equal parts industrial and dancefloor ready, with a relentless energy that’s impossible to resist. Speaking about “Cold House”, frontman Harrison Swann says: “I wanted to write something big but less dark and focussed on those noughties bands coming out of New York. They were absolutely having it. Honestly I can’t wait to play to play this to a crowd”.
