Talk In Tongues share debut single ‘Still Don’t Seem To Care’

Talk in Tongues

Los Angeles foursome Talk In Tongues have shared their debut single, Still Don’t Seem To Care, lifted from their new 7″ due out on November 25 via Fairfax RecordingsThey booked a show weeks after their first practice together in early 2014, and the very next day, they went into their home studio and recorded Still Don’t Seem To Care. Take a listen to the track via Soundcloud below.

The song was mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer (Arctic Monkeys, Interpol). This was just the kind of sound the band had been looking for, says Kirgo: “I wanted to play big music, like something you’d hear at a fest like Glastonbury. That’s what made me want to dive into psychedelic rock.”

The band signed with Fairfax Recordings, whose legendary in-house studio sealed the deal for Talk In Tongues. “It just so happened that the first label that hit us up was Fairfax, and it was exactly what we were looking for,” says Rector. “Every step of the way, there’s been a new opportunity, and we go for it. It’s all been very serendipitous.”

Fairfax Recording sessions that were supposed to only produce a B-side or two stretched into day after day of working on what would become their debut album. Everyone in Talk In Tongues writes and plays multiple instruments-they all play each other’s instruments, says Zeile-and everyone had a catalog of ideas they’d been saving. For the first time in his career, noticed drummer Bryan DeLeon, he was in a band where there was no such thing as writer’s block. And as the summer of 2014 ended, they decided they’d finished their full-length-two months after they’d walked in to record a single. (And the eventual B-side of that Still Don’t Seem To Care single? A remix by Scandinavian visionary Dungen, due out this November.)

With production from Kevin Augunas (Cold War Kids, Edward Sharpe), their debut album, out in early 2015 on Fairfax Recordings, links modern-day psychedelia with the foundation of early 60’s experimentation-it’s melody and atmosphere and noise-as-beauty captured (barely) in songs that should be blasting out of the Coachella main stage somewhere around midnight. The bands drummer DeLeon says: “We’re excited this is 100% ours, and we put in the world-every part of this album is an expression of ourselves.”
