Indie / Electronic dream pop effort, There’s Talk , began as project by Oakland based multi-instrumentalist Olivia Lee (vocals, synths, programming, guitar) as she wrote in between other collaborations.
She began recording in the the converted garage studio of friend Nic De La Riva and finished recording and mixing with engineer Ian Pellicci (Yann Tiersen, Rogue Wave, Hauschka) at Tiny Telephone.
Kellen Balla (electronics, programming, vocals) and Young Lee (guitar, vocals) were added with hopes of expanding ambitious electronic soundscapes for live performance.
The debut EP, Tiny Stands, rich with eclectic subtleties and dark harmonies reminiscent of folk influence Sufjan Stevens and textural confessions of Youth Lagoon, released Fall of 2013 garnering recognition from Vimeo, Bandcamp, Impose Magazine, and Crack in the Road.
After the release the band toured regionally, supporting Glass Animals, Cigarettes After Sex, Arthur Beatrice, Waters, Astronauts Etc, Holly Miranda, Money and more. Utilizing vocal looping, lush synthesizers, and reverb drenched guitar the three took to a hauntingly dynamic wall of sound that now sets the tone for the full band.
Their highly anticipated sophomore EP, bathed water moon, is due for release February 23rd, 2018.
Peep and repeat the incredible single ‘Give it Up’ below. Olivia’s voice is ethereal and angelic with an imperfect edge, backed by dream-like synth elements. Prepare to be taken on a journey of meditative ambience.
