Leeds based six-piece Talkboy combine their noisy yet playful indie rock with captivating melodies and layers of vocal harmonies, shifting between psychedelic walls of fuzz to intimate soundscapes, recalling the likes of The Big Moon, Arcade Fire and Alvvays.
The band consist of shared lead vocals from Katie Heap and Calum Juniper, alongside guitarist Tim Malkin, keyboardist Charlotte Jones, bassist Tom Sargent and drummer Jake Greenway.
Since forming in late 2017, Talkboy have begun to develop a buzz around themselves, performing sets at Live at Leeds, Gold Sounds and a sold out gig curated by BBC Introducing producer, Abbie McCarthy. The bands’ first single is set for release at the end of June.
