LAND OF TALK

“Calming Night Partner,” the title track of Land of Talk’s forthcoming EP, is a tender song full of violence.Elizabeth Powell’s fuzzy, ’90s-inflected guitar strums quietly over a starry blanket of noise while they sing a series of terrifying questions: “Was it a knife fight? Was it a lifetime? Did she wear you down, wear you in, sacrificial? Did she tear you right down the middle?” That strange, dissociative marriage of sound and words sums up the alchemy of Calming Night Partner: the music creates a safe harbour where painful and traumatic experiences can be safely explored.
