Rejoice Chalk Talk fans, they are back with a brand new single and a six-track EP! For those of you unfamiliar, Chalk Talk is a little bit of surf, a little bit of punk, and a little bit of 90’s style indie (they get around).
First of all, right off the bat the production on this thing is a drastic improvement from Chalk Talk’s previous singles. It seems that they have really stepped their game up since Killing Spree, and I am definitely impressed. It is a much cleaner sound that surprisingly suits them. Chalk Talk has absolutely matured in the instrumentation and recording department, but they’ll never grow up in their lyrical content. They are still the same goofy dudes with hilariously great lyrics (in a good way).
The drummer of Chalk Talk always brings such great energy to the band. From the appealingly stammering drum beat in the beginning of “You’re In,” to the powerful and bombastic conclusion, he definitely delivers the needed goods. In fact, Chalk Talk’s energy is what I’ve always most appreciated about them. Most surfy or beachy kind of bands are centered around having these really lazy sounding songs. Chalk Talk reminds us yet again that the beach is not just for relaxing, it’s for having an all-out great time!
This track is just great. If you’ve loved Chalk Talk’s previous tracks, then I can’t imagine you not liking this. If you haven’t already you should get on the pre-order of Bad Influences. It looks like Chalk Talk has exciting things happening. Maybe even some exciting things involving Sweet Nothings…stay tuned.
