SYMBOL/SIGNAL OUT NOW ON VINYL
“Lost Talk's strong and intense take on noise rock and punk suggests influences from innovative acts like X-Ray Spex and Sonic Youth, and establishes them as one of the genre's very promising new band”. Destroy//Exist” UK.
LOST TALK are a whirlwind of tastes and flavours, each delivering the diverse musical backgrounds of its six band members. Driven by feverish, penetrating guitars and a carnally discordant rhythmic section, LOST TALK drag you through the disasters and redemptions of modern life. Amy Mowle’s sometimes salty, sometimes sweet, frenetic narration delivers stream-of-consciousness reveries that follow their musical descent into the depths of chaotic dissonance and back. From the irony of destruction, to the beauty of the downfall, LOST TALK’s shameless intensity forces you to contemplate the contradictions of existence and the absurdity of your own place within it.
Forming in late 2016 in Melbourne, Australia, LOST TALK was wrought from a repertoire of undead bands, Steven Smith - Guitar (SCUL HAZZARDs), Max Ducker - Guitar (Mutton/ Hoarse), Jason Barfoot - Percussion (Mongrel Country / MF & his Truckload of Hope), Sam Reid – Drums (Bone), Andrew Brown - Bass (Worm Crown), and offbeat songstress, Amy Mowle – Vocals... new to the game. Lost Talk deliver a relentless, unique noise-rock set that has appeared presumably out of nowhere.
After a string of successful shows in the band’s freshman year, including playing 3RRR’s April After Dark showcase alongside RVG and The Smith Street Band, LOST TALK slowed down to write and produce its first LP, SYMBOL/SIGNAL set for vinyl/digital release through Spooky Records Feb 2018. The album was recorded at Max's Cellar Sessions Studio by Max and Steven, who worked to complement the themes dealt with throughout the album, lending substance and extracting the true essence of the band for a sound that is as consistent as it is unpredictable.
