"Big Creature will be launching their 2nd EP, “Talk” at the Gasometer Hotel on September 28. “Talk” (the song and the EP) deals with some pretty heavy personal themes in the lyrics through the lens of a sort of 80s pop-timism which stems from an obsession with Peter Gabriel, Talking Heads, Tears For Fears, Prince and co. At first the lyrical content may seem at odds with the overall mood of the music but part of the goal of the EP is to examine loss and pain in a hopeful light.
Sonically, the music draws heavily from the artists mentioned above, as well as contemporary artists such as Passion Pit, M83 & Phoenix. The songs brimming with sparkling synths, 80s horn stabs and scratchy, syncopated funk guitars.
The release of “Talk” also marks a second beginning for the band with the addition of drummer Lachy Wyatt and multi-instrumentalists Ezekiel Fenn and Dan Whalan to the lineup.”
