Talk to Angels release their new single Enemies in Oct.

The hotly anticipated new single is here hot off the press and ready to explode into your senses via the Warp Speed Carousel label. Neon, fuzzy, synth-laden epic alt-pop bursting with hooks, harmonies and hyperactive guitars. Talk To Angels are the United Nations of the music industry, uniting the coolest of indie kids, the scruffiest of metal-heads and the smoothest of pop princesses as one. Bringing the world together is a beautiful thing – someone has to since Bono jarred his back.

The music industry in the United States was the first to pick up on the band, inviting them to last years South by Southwest festival and undertaking a debut tour of the US — resulting in a dramatic conclusion after the final gig when two of the band met with a car running a red light, leaving two of the band with major injuries and a major medical bill.

Three quarters of Talk to Angels were born in Bradford 20 years ago. Craig Kaye (vocals/guitar) Chris Robbins(bass) and Jamie Lofthouse (drums) have known each other pretty much all their lives, forming the band at the – some would say annoyingly early – age of 15 and quickly establishing the stuff of legend on the Yorkshire gig circuit with their incendiary live shows and pyjama parties.

A couple of years ago they cleverly negotiated some free studio time with Mickey Dale – the keyboard player from Embrace – in return for clearing out his basement (you know the usual lawnmower, Christmas decorations, car parts) so he could physically get a studio in there. Mickey agreed to engineer new tracks from the three storm troopers. Mickey turned on the mixing desk, sat back and was promptly blown away by the sheer quality and velocity of the band and announce right there he was joining the band! Let’s face it, Mickey knows a thing or two about bands – augmenting an already joyous, often acerbic, dramatic sound with his to create a unique cacophony resulting in one of the singles of 2010.

Talk To Angels write vivid songs about girls, about life in a Northern town, about guilt and pleasure and pain, violence. Bittersweet laments about life, lost love and murderous intentions driven by incendiary passion. Talk To Angels deliver is a sound that makes boys dance and girls weak at the knees.

The band tour the UK this autumn and you can see them at the following live dates
