I’m just gonna put it out there: I still buy all my music. I know, book me into the nearest nursing home, grandma coming through – I’m just not sold on
illegally downloading music. My dream is to one day make a living through my music, and I can’t justify effectively taking money from the bands and artists we love. Especially when iTunes gives away a song FOR FREE every week (props to Tim Cook) – and even more so when they personally gift-wrap and hand you Talk Too Much by Sydney artist Andy Bull. This singer-songwriter has produced alternative hits such as Keep On Running and Baby I Am Nobody Now, and this song (in my humble opinion) is all that and more.
The first synth part retains elements of his earlier work, and paired with a persistent drum beat throughout the whole song, really lifts the track. But what gives Bull the edge are his rich vocals. Ohh I could listen to him sing all day (not to be confused with Allday) about anything. Even cleaning up your room mate’s mess in the bathroom after last night’s fiesta would be heavenly. He’s done well by stripping back the synth to showcase his soaring tenor voice – also note the intensity of the chorus, woah.
I first heard Bull on Triple J’s Hottest 100 2013, and I do think he’s got a great chance of scoring another mention this year. I’m also super happy for more action on the Sydney music scene (yeah back off Melbourne, we’ve got Andy Bull) and the return of a great artist. So go on, give your ears a treat and go grab Talk Too Much (or just watch it below). Let me know what you think in the comments below!
