Honestly, it only took me a few seconds to fall in love with new single Talk So Loud by Sweden’s Tribe Friday. It is like they took the best parts of two of my favorite bands ( The Kooks & Arctic Monkeys ) and blended them together, creating this perfect indie rock song for today.
Talk So Loud is the lead single off Tribe Fridays debut Chasing Pictures EP which is expected out sometime in March. The single is an ode to New York City and has all the jangly guitars and killer hooks I could ask for.
Here is what songwriter, singer, and guitarist Noah Deutschmann had to say about how the inspiration struck him:
“I’m a huge fan of New York’s music scene from the Velvet Underground, through the Ramones, to The Strokes and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs , so finding out we were gonna play the Mercury Lounge was a very big deal. It compelled me to write something that paid homage to the sound of New York City (or at least what the sound of NYC is to me), while still maintaining our brand of Swedish teenage angst.”
To him, he brought out the New York sound ( and I see that ) but to me it is all Brit Indie Pop and I am hooked.
