I don't know what it is exactly about Andy Bull's new song, "Talk Too Much," but I'm completely in the mood for all the '80s-throwback goodness it's serving up.
Blame it on the
rain "Jem And The Holograms" casting announcement, I guess.
Backed by a synth-heavy instrumental that could very well be the lovechild of The Cure's "Love Song" and The Thompson Twins' "Lies," the Australian singer-songwriter describes a relationship on the rocks: "Baby, I talk too much, talk too much/ I told you that I heard you crying to yourself/ I pretended I was asleep."
Paired with the audio is a non-video visual (kind of like what St. Vincent did for "Digital Witness" a few months back) where Andy sits pensively in a restaurant booth. Although he removes what looks to be an engagement or wedding band from his left hand, the ring is back in its original position by clip's end.

So, are you single or not right now, buddy? You're really sending me mixed messages. Sorry, I swear that wasn't my only takeaway from your work.
Look for Andy Bull's second studio album, Sea of Approval, when it drops on July 11.
