Let's Talk is a slow beat trip-hop-esque alt-rock number whose energy increases beat after beat. A hypnotising start relentlessly builds up to an overwhelming final vortex full of gusts of distorted guitars and over-saturated screaming vocals.

Silty’s presence predominates from the very beginning of the track thanks to an eerie delayed-bass cadence, backbone of the entire song, and to her penetrating vocals, this time putting aside her ‘signature’ melodic nuances for a more ‘direct-talk’ performance.

The alienating mood pouring out of incisively crafted lyrics together with stylised guitars’ ambience create an existential imagery where everything feels estranged and all the links between inner world and outer reality seem damaged or broken.

Entirely produced by The Actions and mastered by the legendary Tim Young (Massive Attack, Björk, Placebo), Let's Talk is a unique production which; stylistically, is like a ‘suspension bridge’ between what the band’s sound has been and what it will be in the future.

TheActions are Silty (vocals and bass guitar) and Mo Stellato (guitars/keys). Heavily influenced by Trip Hop, Dark Wave and Psychedelia, the band began writing and producing their own music trying to create a fusion between the three, the resulting sound is a product of years of experimentation and collaboration with different artists.

Dedicated live performers, they’ve seen themselves sharing the bill with globally recognised artists such as R.E.M., Green Day and Garbage.

To date they picked up support from the likes of  BBC 6 Music’s  Tom Robinson, BBC London’s Gary Crowley, Radio X’s John Kennedy, Amazing Radio’s Simon Raymonde and Mark Ryan, plus a number of independent and collage radio stations in Europe, USA and Canada.

Needless to say, Ralph  gave Let's Talk a pre-release spin last Sunday on the Radio KC Indie Show.
