Burnside Album Details
Foreign Talks, Foreign Talks
With literally one listen, Expunged Records’ president offered to sign Foreign Talks. At the ripe old ages of 17 (Madison), 18 (Marcus) and 19 (Kevin and Tanner), Foreign Talks deliver a mature sound, and technical sophistication well beyond their years. Their unique brand of indie-rock is created by blending fast-paced lyricism, four-part vocal harmonies, and syncopated hook-driven guitar riffs. While completely original, it is somewhat reminiscent of Bombay Bicycle Club and Local Natives. The compilation of songs on their self-titled debut bursts at the seams with youthful energy. It only takes one listen of Foreign Talks debut to become completely captivated by Marcus’s raw vocal timbre and razor-like cadence, which brilliantly contrasts with Madison’s unique and powerful falsettos.
