Today’s new music spotlight is on Talkboy

Location: Leeds

Line-up: Katie Heap (vocals), Calum Juniper (vocals/guitar), Tim Malkin (guitar), Charlotte Jones (keys), Tom Sargent (bass), Jake Greenway (drums).

About: Talkboy are a group of six friends from Leeds who sing songs about each other, the people around them, and the lives they lead. They combine their playful indie rock with captivating melodies and layers of vocal harmonies, shifting between euphoric walls of noise and intimately sweet soundscapes.

What Hidden Herd say: On ‘Hollow Spheres’, Talkboy introduce a swelling opus that explodes beautifully into a soaring journey that’s assertive and outward-facing, whilst holding an intimate internal story.

For fans of: Arcade Fire & Los Campesinos
