Close Talker

Close Talker is an indie rock band from Saskatoon, Canada. The band has toured throughout North America and Europe, and has gained the attention and praise of notable publications such as NPR, Billboard, Clash, Spin, Q Magazine, and Consequence of Sound.

After now a decade of performing and writing together, Close Talker has been an integral aspect to the individual lives of Will, Matthew, and Chris. The project that started as a passion for three friends in 2012 has become formative to their identities. It’s applying the nurture vs. nature argument to now-thirty year olds from the Canadian prairies, a place where change happens slowly and nostalgia holds strong. These are the core themes they dig into in their upcoming release: ‘The Sprawl’.


From its first springtime keystrokes, Run Wild - POSTDATA’s latest fourth LP - is a brilliant, technicolor indie rock odyssey.

There is a palpable sense of magic and possibility and light to the record, even in its heavier moments. With this collection of 10 songs, Murphy has crystallized the elements he’s played with for decades: pop melodics and structure, prog-and indie-rock arrangements, avant-folk intimacy and quirk. Murphy plays the mad alchemist, precisely combining these pieces to create a record that feels like a thick, sprawling, sun-soaked magic garden, where listeners can sprint and jump and scream and laugh, and feel whatever it is they need to feel.

“I felt like it was time to take POSTDATA someplace new, and be a little more free with what it is,” he says. “I was trying to go all-out stylistically, and trying to flesh out all the differentplaces that it could actually take it. I wanted to give it more space, allow it to go wherever it needed to.”
