Australian electro-pop four-piece, Strange Talk have returned to the scene with a brand new single, Cast Away, which will be included on their highly anticipated debut album due out around early 2013.
A video for the new single can be watched below, directed by Phillip Sage (Miami Horror, Nike). The clip aims to tell a story that most people growing up in the suburbs could relate to, but with a twist and a hint of 80’s film nostalgia. The track itself is a laid-back combination of synth washes, toms, layered vocals and organic instrumentation, and shows the band’s ambitions to bring together futuristic soundscapes with hook-laden hits.
To launch the single, the band have announced some club shows for Sydney and Melbourne, along with an appearance at Hobart’s Soundscape Festival this November. Strange Talk will also head out to the US in October, where they’ll perform a run of dates including a CMJ performance opening for The Presets at Terminal 5.
