The Talks - Don't Look Behind You 
The Talks - Don't Look Behind You

Release Date: 28th April 2014

I love a bit of ska, me. It's great fun to dance to and there usually some fun lyrics to sing along to while you skank with a pint in your hand. Kingston-upon-Hull lads The Talks are indie-ska lovers and their new single 'Don't Look Behind You' wears that influence on its sleeve. The problem I have with this particular release, however, is that the keyboard melody sounds a bit like a demented icecream van and the rest of the song sounds like a cross between Space and Hard-Fi which is not something anybody really wants if they're honest with themselves. There are some nice punky vocals and a tight rhythm section but there's nothing else I can really hook in to on this one so I'll just keep this one short but sweet. Over and out.
