Laid-back Californian sensibility
Indie pop-rock duo are thrilled to release their new single “Uturn” feat. Caroline Kingsbury” that is out now and featured on Under the Radar. TALK TIME is the collaboration of singer-songwriter Edson Choi and multi-instrumentalist Mike Nissen.
The duo says, “The song had been a staple of our live repertoire, but when we got into the studio it just felt like something was missing. The day before tracking Mike hunkered down and redid the arrangement from scratch, emphasizing the beat and dynamic synths and the track ultimately ended up with. At the same time our producer Math Bishop hooked us up with a collaboration with one of our favorite singers, Caroline Kingsbury (whose record is also produced by Bishop), her guest vocals were a perfect way to complete the song.”
The duo’s unique perspective draws from Choi’s “third culture kid” background, and filters it through their laid-back Californian sensibility. With an earnest lyrical style and big hooky choruses, their sound lives inside a lush world of textures and riffs.
Since debuting in 2018, TALK TIME has been featured by KCRW, KROQ, and Conan O’Brien, among others. Like their debut, the second EP is produced and engineered by Math Bishop (Silversun Pickups, The Killers) and is set for a Summer 2021 release.
