There’s Talk – “A Slow Return”

Lush and spacey with an entrancing melodic pull, “A Slow Return” is a memorable new track from There’s Talk. Impressing with the bathed water moon EP in 2018, the Oakland-based trio is prepping the release of their third EP, Great Falls, of which “A Slow Return” is a part. Olivia Lee’s serenely gripping vocal presence joins with synth-laden frequencies for a mystical-sounding success, joined lovingly by tender guitar twangs after the first-minute mark. Hazy, twinkling textures and dreamy vocals concoct another standout showing from There’s Talk.

“A Slow Return” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2020’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Dream-Pop.
