Saskatoon trio Close Talker has just released their new LP album How Do We Stay Here?. The band states that it’s about “trying to learn from experiences, trying to keep perspective, trying to progress in this weird world, and sometimes trying not to progress at all; to sit in a moment and soak it in for all it has to offer before it becomes nothing more than a memory.” The 11-track album was self-produced by the band at RMS Labs in Regina in 2018, and they hope the songs still carry the same meaning in 10 years.
Close Talker recently won Alternative Artist of The Year at the Saskatchewan Music Awards—due to not only their recordings and videos, but their iconic live shows. They’ve just announced that they will be embarking on a North American tour this Fall/Winter upon returning from touring overseas. They will play in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC, as well as a small handful of US shows. For a full list of dates visit their website here.
I’m Shayla, and I was born in Saskatoon but moved to Halifax in 2013 for University, and since decided to stay here for a while. I recently received a Bachelor of Design, after studying photography for a year or two as well. I love everything about music and how it has the ability to bring so many people together from across the country and even the world. My passion for music is one of the reasons I moved East to pursue a photography and design career, as I would love to do graphic design and photography within the Canadian music industry.
