With their sleek yet gritty brand of alt-bluesy garage rock, Toronto-based five-piece July Talk create rock & roll that’s both boldly intimate and wildly confrontational. Each track in the band’s repertoire is a conversation in song form, with singers Peter Dreimanis and Leah Fay trading lines in a lyrical face-off that’s at turns hot- tempered and tender, reckless and poetic. Onstage that conversation warps into beautiful chaos, thanks to the band’s joyfully unhinged, spontaneity-fueled live performance.
We covered July talk in October of 2014 when they were at First Avenue opening for the Rural Alberta Advantage and really liked their music and especially their stage presence. They are returning this Saturday to headline at the Triple Rock Social Club. Tickets are available here
