Talk To Angels "Enemies Closer"

Bradford's Talk To Angels release their new single "Enemies Closer" on the 18th October - a track ready to explode into your senses with neon fuzzy, synth-laden epic alt-pop, bursting with hooks, harmonies and hyperactive guitars.

Talk To Angels unite the coolest of indie kids, the scruffiest of metal-heads and the sassiest of pop princesses as one, and were invited to perform at last year's South by Southwest festival and undertook a debut tour of the US straight afterwards. The jaunt resulted in a dramatic conclusion after their last gig when one of the band met with a car running a red light, leaving him with serious injuries and a band stranded far from home. But a crushing alloy bumper would never be enough to keep these young troopers down for long...

Three quarters of Talk to Angels were born in Bradford 21 years ago. Craig Kaye (vocals/guitar) Chris Robbins (bass) and Jamie Lofthouse (drums) have known each other pretty much all their lives, forming the band at the tender age of 15.

A couple of years ago, they cleverly negotiated some free studio time with Mickey Dale the keyboard player from Embrace in return for clearing out his basement (you know the usual - lawnmower, Christmas decorations, car parts) so he could physically get a studio in there.

Mickey agreed to engineer new tracks from the three noiseniks. Mickey turned on the mixing desk, sat back and was promptly blown away by the sheer quality and velocity exploding from the speakers and announced right there he was joining the band!

Talk To Angels write vivid songs about guilt, pleasure and pain. Bittersweet laments about life, lost love and murderous intentions driven by incendiary passion. The lads deliver a sound that makes boys dance and girls weak at the knees.

"Enemies Closer" will be available to buy from 18th October.
