Liverpool's Tear Talk release their new EP Ruins today, their first since their debut single Breathe in 2013. We've chosen the opening track from the EP, Realise, as our Track Of The Day.
Realise has a dark, brooding, slightly menacing and foreboding undertone in its arrangements and its lyrics, particularly in its chorus which appears to reflect on the remnants of a long-term relationship of some form or other ("we're out of touch, out of time, it took me this long to realise") and you hear their stated influences Echo And The Bunnymen and The Jesus And Mary Chain in the song without it ever feeling like they're solely aping their heroes.
Tear Talk have a launch gig planned for Saturday 31st at the Scandinavian Church in Liverpool.
They can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Bandcamp and Soundcloud.
