Pray For It
Pray For It, the third album by highly successful alternative/rock band July Talk, redefines yet again their well-known musical chops that have already brought them multiple number one singles, along with legendary, and physically riveting, live performances from band members Leah Fay, Peter Dreimanis, Josh Warburton, Ian Docherty, and Danny Miles. Also worth mentioning, is that the new album features the work of four of “alternative/rock royalty’s” producers, that include Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett), Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck, Metz), David Plowman (Brendan Canning), and Milan Sikardi (Said The Whale).
Key cuts on Pray For It include the mid-tempo rocker “Good Enough” and the high octane rocker “The News”. The dreamy dark ballad “Pay For It” includes Fay’s vocal lament, “hard to break these ancient habits” . The radio-friendly “Pretender” is a gospel-guided collaboration with Toronto artists James Baley and Kyla Charter that presents potent truths about exploitation and privilege.
With the release of Pray For It, July Talk continues to develop both musically, and in their new roles as advocates of the recalibration of the music industry in a pandemic world.
