STRANGE TALK are the flourishing melodies heard behind rooftop conversations amongst strangers. They’re also moonlighting as the anthem to your club and festival night. That’s the kind of beguiling juxtaposition that the Melbourne duo, comprised of Stephen Docker and Gerard Sidhu bring to your summer soundtrack.
In 2012, Strange Talk were making a name for themselves in Australia – they were busy doing the rounds on the Aussie festival circuit appearing at Parklife, Stereosonic, Future Music, Soundscape and Falls, while opening for indie heavyweights like Neon Indian and Foster the People. Meanwhile, in the States they were hitting the #1 spot on Billboard’s Uncharted chart and whispers of their talent were growing louder. It was time Strange Talk officially made their US debut which they did with their LP, “Cast Away,” in 2013. Soundcloud streams would hit over 1 million streams, and official remixes would soon arrive from artists like Dillon Francis, Chainsmokers and Viceroy – propelling the group into the kind of blogosphere stardom that the duo could only dream about when they first formed in their bedroom in 2011.
