Listen: Black Midi – “Talking Heads” [2019]

Top hype band of 2019 black midi are putting their money where their mouth is by following up their outrageously tight, glorious live shows with studio recordings that actually do justice to their live energy. “Talking Heads” is one of the more straightforward songs in their set, its backbone being a rigid, hyperactive guitar line and flourished by flashes of virtuosic drums.

Of course it’s fair to reference an influence in the song title’s subject matter, Talking Heads, and all the bands that were in turn inspired by them, filtering down into this one track in 2019. But Black Midi are really sounding like nothing besides Black Midi right now, and that’s exciting.
