NEW SINGLE FROM JULY TALK – “I AM WATER”
July Talk go aquatic with new single “I Am Water,” in which the band grapples with our human nothingness as a counterbalance to capital D Dread. Like all true Scorpios, “I Am Water” is ruled by a vast force of emotion, just as the tide is controlled by the moon. Powered by alarm and elation, the new song celebrates moving our bodies. “But we coincide,” Leah and Peter sing; we are here, now, together. When we face the cosmic improbability of it all, we can dance.
With this new song, July Talk begin a new era with Six Shooter Records. The new partnership brings the founding of Danuta, equal parts independent record label, production company and creative collective, as a new home base for Leah Fay Goldstein and Peter Dreimanis’ many creative pursuits.
“‘I Am Water’ emerged over the summer in a wild jam session with our dear friends Kevin Drew and Dani Nash (she is also joining us on percussion + vocals this tour). We all tried to let our instincts do the talking, and as Kev put it, the song ended up feeling “urgent and free”. We are feeling encouraged by the opportunity to let loose and share all our pent up energy with the world. It’s hard to stop smiling at the start of this new era, approaching our first big tour back and starting our own independent record label/production company/creative collective, Danuta with our fam at Six Shooter. Onwards with love!
