People//Talk are a 4 piece post-punk band from Liverpool, England.
October 2014 will see the bands second EP released through San Diego based Bleeding Gold Records.
People//Talk formed in a pub in January of 2012 under the original name of So Sexual.
What started out as a few friends who had previously played in bands together thinking that maybe it’d be fun to write a bunch of songs and play a gig (which they did in the space of the first month), has 2 years later proven to have a little more longevity than any of them might have anticipated.
Within that time frame the band now known as People//Talk has developed their own distinct identity, drawing upon elements of post/punk and new wave whilst delivering a contemporary, accessible sound.
For those who are already familiar with and enjoyed the bands previous works as ‘So Sexual’ you will be pleased to find that a change of name doesn’t mean a departure from the overall sound.
For those of you listening to People//Talk for the first time here’s what you should know-
