“Break Character,” the latest track from Austin power-pop band Talkies, is one of those songs that hits you with a good feeling right away.
Easily taking their sound from another era, the Talkies play together well, writing a song with forceful guitar riffs and bashing drums, all tied in together to create a body of work that feels like the group has a solid Austin vibe.
With a sound that could have been popular decades ago, “Break Character” will be a hit track among old-school Austinites and those looking for a retro vibe. As we hear bands coming out with different sounds and style throughout our local scene, Talkies will be one of the acts to survive, as they have an original angle that will keep them going for a long time.
