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.
