The July Talk concert features the full band, pre-recorded at the legendary El Mocambo Tavern in Toronto. July Talk are nominated for two awards at the 2021 Jim Beam INDIE Awards.
July Talk continues to rise with purpose and poise. The band stormed in with the flinty rock n’ roll of their debut, followed by the volatile siren songs of Touch, an album of sawtoothed pop + convulsing tension. Pray For It, July Talk acknowledges the power of vulnerability as a way to begin again. Their churning and fiercely physical performances make spaces hiss and hum, spit and seethe in glorious, artful abandon.
The band has also grown in their roles as advocates of an urgent and fundamental music industry recalibration, through curatorial partnerships with festivals and by defining their own parameters for safer spaces at rock shows. July Talk is Leah Fay, Peter Dreimanis, Josh Warburton, Ian Docherty + Danny Miles.
