Let's Talk About It
Watch the video for White Denim's single Let's Talk About It released in the UK on Full Time Hobby. White Denim are due to unleash their multi-genre tour de force of a debut album 'Workout Holiday' on June 23rd through Full Time Hobby. After a string of sold-out and sweaty London dates in April, White Denim return to the UK in June for a tour. The band recently played SXSW and were one of the highlights for many SXSW goers.
The opening salvo off the debut album is 'Let's Talk About It'. As much a questioning themselves as to where next, they are asking the audience what it is they really desire of a band. This track comes over like a wonderful throwback to a bygone age where a band could make such a bold and bracing statement in around the two minute mark!
What makes it even more remarkable is the band have self-produced this and all tracks on the forthcoming album in their studio. Well okay, to call it a studio would be a slight over-statement as it was recorded in a vintage, spartan trailer in the wilderness of TX. As James simply states, 'with a mic, computer, whiskey and energy elixirs' for company. Wriggling free from the straight jacket that is âgarage rockâ, the WD sound could be likened to an updated millennial Minutemen, fused with Devo and MC5, topped off with Monks-style chants and a soulful wail c/o James Petralli that really lifts the bands into a different realm.
White Denim are James Petralli (guitar/vox) Josh Block (drums) & Steve Terebecki (bass)
