Reliably informed

When I first read the title of this song it reminded me of Raymond Carver’s short story collection What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, and I was delighted to find out this was the inspiration for the new song by Tales.

This angsty track perfectly blends a new rock sound rooted in the literary. The lyrics focus on Carver’s details of unrequited love, wrapped up in this addictive and catchy track, which packs an electric punch with some lyrics on the cheekier side.

The four-piece seem to be on a trend, releasing one track per year for the last three years. This fourth track by Tales definitely leaves me intrigued for more from the band moving forward, especially in the confidence this single elevates.
