July Talk Drop Tracklisting, Tour Dates And New Video For ‘Push + Pull’
July Talk are set to make their debut on the iHeartRadio MMVA stage on June 19 and to get us even more excited for what’s sure to be an explosive performance, the band has now released the video for their new single, “Push + Pull.”
The track is the lead single for Touch, the Toronto indie band’s follow-up to their 2012 critically acclaimed self-titled debut album.
Director Nadia Tan was behind the camera for “Push + Pull,” working with the group to highlight the meaning of the song.
Said Tan, “He (Peter Dreimanis) told me it was about Western excess, about our never-ending appetite, about the types of people who consume and consume and don’t know when to stop, about our irrational but constant need for more food, more mind-altering substances, more sex, more ‘likes’, more money, more things. I thought it would be interesting to try to capture these themes in the video through raw documentary-style footage showing various groups of people partaking in excess in different ways across North America over the course of one night.”
Shot in black and white in typical July Talk fashion, the video is comprised of a number of seemingly ordinary occurrences, with an aggressive performance from Dreimanis and shots of vocalist Leah Fay performing a contemporary dance routine mixed in.
In addition to the new video, July Talk have also released the tracklisting for Touch, which is set to be released on September 9. The 10-track album includes the songs “Picturing Love,” “Beck + Call,” “Strange Habit,” “Now I Know,” “Johnny + Mary,” “Push + Pull,” “Lola + Joseph,” “So Sorry,” “Jesus Said So,” and “Touch.”
July Talk will be hitting the road this summer to promote the new album, making their way across Europe and North America, including 12 Canadian dates.
