May 1, 2015





BURNSTICK” Out 15th June  – Via Nevado / Rough Trade


“Close Talker’s sophomore record allowed the band to really combine their efforts, both sonically and lyrically.”

–       Interview Magazine


“…intricate guitar pop framed by Local Natives-like harmonies and Bombay Bicycle Club briskness.” –  Q Magazine


Simply good at what they do: Straight forward catchiness, finely tuned and delivered cleanly”

–  Consequence of Sound




After gathering comparisons to the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club and Local Natives, this young four-piece band have established their moody rock sound, paving their own path from North America to the UK and Europe. ‘Burnstick’ delivers on huge choruses, tight rhythms and finely tuned songwriting – all the hallmarks of a band whose mark is soon to be made permanent.

 Close Talker’s sophomore LP ‘Flux’ has been described by SPIN Magazine as “rigid yet sanguine…with achingly euphoric lyricism”. ‘Burnstick’ demonstrates this beautifully.

 ‘Burnstick’ will be available to buy and download from the 15th June 2015 as the band embarks on their first UK tour playing The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City festivals in May.
