The Canadian indie rock/shoegaze group Close Talker have just announced their third album, Lens, and are streaming the lead single “Okay Hollywood.” Lens is due out on May 12th, 2017 via Nevado Music and follows 2014’s Flux.

The quartet lost their bassist in 2015 and have spent the past 18 or so months as a trio. With extra work for each member, it’s been an arduous time for the band. Matt commented: “Although we’re only three people now, the live show always has at least nine limbs working full time to accurately portray the record live.”

01. All Of Us
02. Reptiles

04. Okay Hollywood
05. Afterthought
