For almost 15 years, Montreal’s Land of Talk has been exciting fans of Canadian music with their bright and powerful brand of indie rock; and on July 31, 2020, the band will release their highly anticipated fourth studio album, Indistinct Conversations, via Dine Alone Records.
In the lead up to the release of Indistinct Conversations, Land of Talk are sharing their latest single and video, “Now You Want To Live in the Light.” Lead singer Elizabeth Powell describes it as “a poem set to music. A tender negotiation between the light and dark parts of ourselves.” The video, set in a barn with what appears to be a person in varying stages of distress, was directed by Lara Kramer. Kramer says “In developing the visual image, I anchored myself in the pulse of the song, I wanted to mobilize in ways we think, feel, and do in our self-confronting states.”
All 11 songs on Indistinct Conversations were written by Powell, who also produced and arranged the tracks together with bandmates Mark “Bucky” Wheaton (drums/keys) and Christopher McCarron (bass).

Born and raised with thoughts and aspirations of becoming a famous bassist in Sarnia, ON; Emily Plunkett now lives in Gatineau, QC, and considers National Capital Region home sweet home. A product of the Beatles, MuchMusic and the Southwestern Ontario summer festival circuit (circa 2000), her interest and love in concert photography came almost completely by accident when her journalism program at Algonquin College required courses in photojournalism (and she quickly realized that photos taken at concerts using a DSLR are enormously better than ones she was taking on a point-and-shoot she bought for a trip to England). She is extremely proud of the fact she has seen Sloan in some form or another 25 times.
