Close Talker is the exalted indie rock trio from Saskatoon, Canada. Formed in 2012, the band has made great strides in a short period of time: two full-length releases, numerous tours throughout North America, Europe, and the UK, and international attention garnered from critically acclaimed blogs and publications. Spin Magazine writes, “Close Talker pair their rigid yet sanguine melodies with achingly euphoric lyricism," while Q Magazine calls the band “one of their country’s most zesty exports.” Exclaim! described the live show as magnetic; “a nice balance of anthemic rock with soaring harmonies and spacey, melodic breakdowns.” In 2015 Close Talker received nominations for Sirius XM’s Emerging Artist of the Year, as well as Western Canadian Music Award’s Video of the Year, Independent Album of the Year, and Radio Starmaker’s Rock Recording of the year.
Close Talker is Will Quiring, Matthew Kopperud, and Chris Morien.
