I don’t know about you, but I’m super crazy excited for season two of Stranger Things on Netflix, which is arriving in but a few days to coincide with Halloween. Australian sibling trio Niterunner pays tribute to their love for the show with a fabulous re-working of S U R V I V E’s synthwave theme. Strange Talk takes on a woozy dissonance and a chill disco twirl. It’s so dreamy intoxicating and foggy enthralling that it could’ve fit right in with the dream pop found on Twin Peak’s soundtrack. Strange Talk is like Men I Trust mixed with the Chromatics’ Italo disco and an ethereal drizzle of Yumi Zouma, all wrapped up in Stranger Thing’s 80s world. Download the track for free, here, while we ready ourselves for a Stranger Things 2 binge spree.

Turns out, Strange Talk’s Gerard Sidhu and Stephen Docker are electro house knights on top of being princes of synthpop and indie electronica. The Australian duo has launched a new project named Knightfall, inspired by French house legends Daft Punk. After working on nothing but Strange Talk for the past 7 years, the pair have decided to take a break to pursue their other love, French electro house, having grown up on a diet of Daft Punk, Justice, Sebastian, and Kavinsky. So here they are with sleek Watching Me, a fresh preview from Knightfall’s debut EP, VOLUME 1. Creamy seductive falsettos and dark riveting house create a The Weeknd meets Daft Punk like effect. The sexy thriller of a dance jam is available from iTunes, here. Stream prior singles Exodus and Speed Machine on Soundcloud, here.

My heart leapt in joy when I first saw the news that Australian duo Strange Talk had revealed a new song, but I was absolutely befuddled when I listened to 

Y.O.U.N.G.H.E.A.R.T.S. You see, this splendid tune was originally on the band’s album Cast Away a few years ago. In fact, it was one of my favorite cuts off the record and it later lead to a fantastic remix by The Chainsmokers, too. It seems the duo have decided to re-release the song. I’m not one to complain. After all, 

Y.O.U.N.G.H.E.A.R.T.S. is a prismatic bright electronic gem, and its vibrant future hued production will surely win over many new fans in a day and age when producers like Gryffin, The Chainsmokers, Louis The Child, and so many others are loved for similar sounds. The track can be purchased from various outlets, here. As previously mentioned, Strange Talk underwent a metamorphosis of sorts since Cast Away, and the once four member band is now a duo more focused on the electronic end of the music spectrum. We greatly look forward in hearing more from Strange Talk’s evolution.

INTERVIEW – Strange Talk – PopsceneSF 10/16/2015

I sat down with Steve of Strange Talk to discuss a variety of topics – the new EP, the departure from the four piece set, ‘strange talks’, and nicknames – about an hour before Strange Talk’s show at PopsceneSF as Jerard worked on some production tweaks before their second show on the EVOLUTION Tour in The States. Prior to the interview we already chatted it up about losing a bag from their flight to Portland and then dove into the lineup. Here’s the interview.

Strange Talk’s forthcoming EP is shaping up to be a stellar release, considering what we’ve heard off it so far. The Australian duo (reduced from a quartet recently) has been showing off some spectacular versatility with the more dancey offerings. From prior progressive electro and nu-disco funk reveals, Strange Talk now moves to future bass and progressive euphoria on new song Painted In Gold, featuring guest vocals by Bertie Blackman. It really is a gilded work of magnificent indie electronic music, an enthralling blend of Passion Pit and Porter Robinson, topped off with divine vocals.

Australia’s Strange Talk has unleashed another infectious song, and this time, they go mega dancey and disco swanky on When It Feels So Good. The luscious tune ventures into Hot Chip meets Chromeo territory, an uplifting song that feels more than just good. If you’ve noticed that the band’s taken a change in direction with their new songs, it may be partly due to the fact that Strange Talk has shrunk from a quartet to a duo. Considering how fantastic their new music has been so far, I’m not complaining, and I look forward to their new EP, due out in October.

It feels like it’s been forever and ever and ever since we’ve been treated to some brand new Strange Talk, but that all changes today as the Australian synthpop quartet return with one of their most electrifying offerings yet. In fact, this time around, Strange Talk even bring along some French electro funkiness on Something’s Bout To Change, an epic indie electronic anthem that will sweep you right off your feet into a progressive but summery TRON like dance euphoria. The song leaves me at a precipice of suspenseful vigor. Something’s about to change… what’s up Strange Talk’s sleeves?

November 22, 2014

In quite the unexpected meeting of acts, Australian synthpop act Strange Talk has remixed Berlin based crooner Sway Clarke II’s infectious song Secret Garden, which features Tink. Strange Talk dress the R&B track up with oodles of glistening, slick synths on the subtle re-working.

Night Terrors Of 1927 dropped one helluva tune named When You Were Mine recently. The Los Angeles alt act teamed up with Canadian twins Tegan and Sara on the superb track, a match made in haven. To throw another act I love into the mix, guess who has remixed the song? Australian synthpop band Strange Talk! Yes, it’s an international affair, and Strange Talk’s uplifting electro house vibing version of the song is a full on energized thriller.
