Gideon Bensen - Talk Talk

Gideon Bensen - Talk Talk
On his debut solo EP “Cold Cold Heart,” Gideon Bensen has drawn up a veritable treasure map for music fans who grew up obsessing over their favourite albums and artists. Boasting intense, deep arrangements that come armed to the teeth with pulsing electronics, bacchanalian horns and feverish backing vocals, it’s a celebration of musical gusto that draws a squiggly line from Lou Reed to Talking Heads, punk to new wave and never runs out of ink.

Despite having a star-studded lineup of musicians, including Buchen, Montaigne, Megan Washington on backing vocals, The Preatures’ Jack Moffitt on guitar and Carlos Adura on drums, not to mention the mastering power of Leon Zervos (Beastie Boys, Wu-Tang Clan), he insists that the entire project came together ad-hoc in a bid to keep the songs fresh.

The result is a suite of songs that sound like nothing Bensen has ever done, but also sound unmistakeably like him. His is a unique voice, both musically and lyrically in Australian alternative music, so it should only make sense that one project wouldn’t be enough to contain it.

About this track...

The industrial ‘80s thrust of the second single off Gideon Bensen's 'Cold Cold Heart' EP, 'Talk Talk' shoves Bensen’s level of instrumentation right to the edge of the sonic cliff. Boasting intense arrangements, pulsing electronics, bacchanalian horns and feverish backing vocals, it’s a celebration of musical gusto; punk-to-new wave.
