TALK TIME was created from scratch in a warehouse in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of East Los Angeles, California. The band channeled their love for catchy yet experimental pop resulting in an exciting lush sound that filters their influences through laid back Californian sensibilities.
Part of the way through the writing process, TALK TIME attracted the attention of producer/engineer Math Bishop (Jacknife Lee, U2, Two Door Cinema Club, The Killers, Silversun Pickups). Math was brought on to engineer and co-produce a batch of songs, all forthcoming within the year.
