JULY TALK w/ Special Guests this is THE SHOES!!
July Talk - Despite their relatively young union, the primary pair behind July Talk has already established its own sonancy: a sound rooted in roots and Americana with the dual-voice charm of Johnny and June, the creepy quirkiness of Tom Waits, and the hooks of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. It's a very unique blend that borrows from different decades and domains, though where those influences begin and end is cleverly disguised.

Most special about a July Talk experience, though, is the foiling of Dreimanis and Fay as personas; who they are inside or outside of the public eye and just what it is that exists between them. Lyrically, the pair plays with the juxtaposition of gender roles and perspectives, distorting social preconceptions. It's often a war waged between clashing personalities in a frame that shares two perspectives of the same relationship  at times conflicted, at times chaotic, most times just downright bewildering.

The opposition between the two forces is only heightened when the band brings its buzz-building show to the stage as both Fay and Dreimanis physically exercise their interpersonal demons via everything from bite marks to blown kisses. Even the line between spectator and spectacle blurs as some crowd members in themselves become a canvas for the art being produced onstage.

It's a relationship full of extremes, both poetic and musical. The lyrics seem to skew an onlooker's perspective of the ever-morphing relationship these two share. The sonic dynamics, on the other hand, are equally polarizing, from whiskey-whetted lyrics at the forefront of a few softly-strummed chords to a flurry of frantic shouting, overdriven guitars, and pulsating rhythms. The loudest louds, the most haunting quiets.

July Talk is currently at work on their debut LP, eyeing a fall 2012 release on White Girl Records. Should it contain even a fraction of the passion and in-your-face frenzy of one of the band's performances, there's no question it'll capture ears and propel them to new plateaus in new places.

this is THE SHOES - From intimate acoustic numbers to gritty electric blues, this is THE SHOES delivers a powerful live performance that has left the band with a dedicated and growing local following. Since their formation in late 2011, the pair has packed venues all over Metro Vancouver. The band released its eponymous debut EP on February 24th, 2012 during a release party at Wise Hall. They are currently writing and recording songs for a full-length debut album.
