In the wake of a fevered response to recent single Banshee, Talk Show are today sharing brand-new track ‘Stress’. Featured as Jack Saunders’ “Midnight Drop” and following a live session last night from Maida Vale, Stress is the latest single to be taken from the band’s forthcoming debut EP “These People.” Where Banshee was a lovelorn tale of frustration, Stress is a punk juggernaut, forthright and direct in its delivery. Lead vocalist and guitarist Harrison Swann says of the track; “When writing ‘Stress’ it instantly felt like a song with a lot of heart and a larger than life attitude. It’s a song about modern love with its emotions and lyrics, worn proudly on its sleeves.
Instantly it felt natural to play ‘Stress’ as large and as loud as we possibly could. Musically we wanted to compliment the forthright nature of the lyrics with a grandiose rhythm section. We tried to juxtapose the negative connotations of the song’s title, with music that was bold and had a lot of attitude, not something that was insular or timid. The first time we ever played that song, I remember it feeling like it had a life of it’s own, it really wanted to burst out of the basement we were in.”
