July Talk continues to rise with purpose and poise. The band stormed in with the flinty rock n’ roll of their debut, followed by the volatile siren songs of Touch, an album of sawtoothed pop + convulsing tension. With Pray For It, their JUNO Award winning third album, July Talk acknowledges the power of vulnerability as a way to begin again. Their churning and fiercely physical performances make spaces hiss and hum, spit and seethe in glorious, artful abandon. The band has also grown in their roles as advocates of an urgent and fundamental music industry recalibration, through curatorial partnerships with festivals and by defining their own parameters for safer spaces at rock shows.
