Strange Talk

Share it Please
They say it's the "british invasion" but another continent is quickly stepping up their game and giving the brits a run for their money. One of those bands are Melbourne newcomers Strange Talk who just came off a tour with fellow Aussies The Griswolds! Touting their new album "Strange Talk", the band has been winning over audiences every show and we were lucky to grab a few minutes with the band to talk about their current journey!

Being a touring band, what are the three things that you had to bring with you while on the road to survive?
Phone chargers, Bean Hunter (Coffee shop finding App) & Ginger Chews!
Currently on the road with fellow australian band The Griswolds, how do you think that has helped the experience touring as an international band?
The Griswold guys are great! They're just like us. They enjoy playing live music, have a similar sense of humor (which sometimes gets lost on Americans) and love to have a chat to anyone who comes up to say "Hey!".

You recently released "Cast Away". How do you feel it's been going over so far?
The only feedback we get is from our fans at our live gigs & we're only 1 week into a 3&1/2 week tour. The shows we've done so far have had a great response, Especially in cities we hadn't visited before! It really makes it worth the hours of driving when fans you've never met before come up to say that they love your music.
How did the band go about the songwriting process for the record? Is it one person, more collective?
Most of the writing was done between Steve & Gerard. It was mostly written between stays at a farm house in country Victoria and a beach house on Port Phillip bay near our hometown of Melbourne.
What was the first CD/Cassette you bought as a kid? What was the first concert you went to and do you think either of those experiences influence the style you're doing today?
My first cassette was Michael Jackson's DANGEROUS album & the first concert I attended was a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert. Both artists are big influences on the style, especially MJ!
