The Australian duo Atlas Bound first outlined for us who they can be compared to back when they remixed Chet Faker's "I'm into You", and today's release of "Talk" is only more evidence they were correct. The vocals throughout the track are soft and romantic, tangled up in peculiar production that I know Chet would approve of.
If you're looking for a quick snippet of their talent, and want an idea of where they fit in in terms of genre, then take thirty seconds of that track. Without revealing really all that much before this drop, Atlas Bound has already garnered over 2,000 followers on Soundcloud. Due to their minimum exposure yet undeniable magnetism online thus far, it isn't hard to imagine this single resonating far and wide amongst music blogs.
"Talk" is a refreshing break from an otherwise constantly crowded music scene, shameless in its ability to showcase the duo's true talent. For them all it took were coffee house vocals and a versatile keyboard, and I respect that immensely. Take a listen to the song via Next Wave Records below, and check out more Atlas Bound here.
