Today, Locals drop their new single Talkboy, their first releasee since signing to Clue Records & Disorder Recordings. The track is short yet powerful and effective, speaking out about topics like social anxiety and a lack of confidence possessed by the band’s sole member Peech Panko.
Talkboy is a lo-fi punk track which will be perfect in summer months. The vocals upon this track are stunning and very reminiscent to those of Fidlar and Wavvves.
Locals saw success from their earlier releases Swing and White Socks, with each track receiving 10’s of thousands of plays on Spotify and radio play from KEXP in the United States. The band are hoping to expand upon this success with the release of an EP later this year.
Currently, Peech is the only member of the band yet he plans on expanding to a full line up, explaining:
I wanted to self release a couple of songs before recruiting members so I could be like “this is what we sound like, if ya dig it then join.
Talkboy is available on the 26th April via Clue Records (home to Avalanche Party, Crushed Beaks, Plaza etc) and Disorder Recordings.
