THE STORY SO FAR…
When you know, you know. You know? One rehearsal in and
the members of Sweet Talk thought, “yeah fuck it I’m in”.
The 6-piece band from Melbourne originally bonded over a
love of late nights, American music, classic song writing
and improvised jams. Add to that a penchant for good times
and a talent for terrible banter and you’ve got all the
right ingredients for some groovy home brew.
As discerning disciples of some of history’s all-time
southern, blues, country, gospel, soul and rock bands;
band leaders and guitar weavers Soren Walker and D.M.
Turner have paid their dues, chasing the music they fell
in love with at an early age. They are joined by fellow
devotees Tane Walker (Vox), Craig Mattingley (Keys), James
Vincent Harding (Bass) & Nic Symonds (Drums), all lifelong
fans of real music played by real people.
Already renowned for their high-energy live shows -
readily whipping unsuspecting punters into frenzied states
of boogie and unabashed song at the drop of a hat - the
band recently doubled down on their ethos to record their
first release completely live to tape. All in the same
room. Let it bleed.
A recent quip from an upcoming documentary on the band by
guitarist Soren Walker might best sum up their approach –
“Sometimes when you’re not hearing it, you’ve gotta do it
yourself”. Sweet Talk seem to have done exactly that,
stitching together a rich tapestry of vintage influence
into something altogether their own. It’s definitely time
to let the good times roll!
