Talkie – idontwannaletyougo
Talkie released a lush synth pop single, idontwannaletyougo, featuring Natalie Nicoles on vocals. Of the many Talkie songs I’ve listened to and enjoyed, this is easily my favorite of theirs. Add this song to your playlists.
Talkie is a four piece from San Francisco, drifting between the genres of indie rock, dream pop, and surf pop. idontwannaletyougo is a standout single. The synths have a rich and rounded analog sound, vocals are gently delivered and smoothed out with harmonies and reverb; the production is so smooth.

We couldn’t find where we left that spark.
One thing never lost,
After all of these words and thoughts

She will be releasing an LP later this year through Run For Cover.

I can read you like scenery
As if I know you still
So we’ll just float with what the tide brings
Can’t stop myself from wondering if you feel it as well
