July Talk release video for “Push + Pull”

July Talk release video for "Push + Pull." The track comes off the band's forthcoming release 'Touch,' out September 9th.

July Talk has released a new video for their lead single “Push + Pull.” Directed by Nadia Tan (Bry Webb, Arkells, Ohbijou), produced by Peter Dreimanis and choreographed by Leah Fay.

“When July Talk first approached me to make a music video for Push + Pull, I had a long phone conversation with Pete about the meaning of the song. He told me it was about Western excess, about our never-ending appetite, about the types of people who consume and consume and don’t know when to stop, about our irrational but constant need for more food, more mind-altering substances, more sex, more ‘likes’, more money, more things,” says director, Nadia Tan. “I thought it would be interesting to try to capture these themes in the video through raw documentary-style footage showing various groups of people partaking in excess in different ways across North America over the course of one night.”

July Talk also announces the release date, track list and reveals the artwork (painted by Toronto-based artist, Charles Bierk) for their new album TOUCH. The follow-up to their self-titled debut will be released on September 9, 2016 on Sleepless Records (Canada), and Island/Universal (US and UK/Europe) and Vertigo/Capitol (Germany). The universally relatable themes of human connection weighed heavily on the band over the creation of Touch. “It seems to get easier every day to disconnect from the people around you,” Dreimanis observes. “Leah and I started to see human touch as this pure thing—this antidote to a world that had become obsessed with mirrors and screens. We became fascinated with that moment where two bodies can actually touch and experience each other honestly.”
