“Arm’s Length” Close Talker

"Arm's Length" Close Talker is Northern Transmissions' 'Song of the Day'
"Arm's Length" Close Talker

Canadian band Close Talker have dropped another new track off their forthcoming full-length release How Do We Stay Here?, the album due out August 30 via Slow Weather. “Arm’s Length” was “the first song we recorded for How Do We Stay Here? and in many ways is the spine of the album sonically,” the band says. “We decided early on that we wanted the album to be spaciousand convey a quiet confidence, though ‘Arm’s Length’ is more about spilling your guts. I think most people have had significant relationships in their lives that haven’t panned out and we’re certainly not exempt to getting the wind knocked out of us. “Arm’s Length” is about overcoming the tendency you can develop to keep your guard up around new people because it’s safer. Over time, you eventually rediscover your ability to let a special someone disarm you once again.”
