Duo SideTalker to release their debut EP, Alchemy, on Halloween. Born at the nexus of electronic and rock & roll, Alchemy is the perfect soundtrack for nocturnal adventuring. You don’t have to wait until Halloween, though, as the band has already dropped two beautifully crafted singles available here.
Together, Eddie Terranova and William Jones – with the help of producer Andy Park (Deftones, Ariana Grande) and rummers Matt Chamberlain (Fiona Apple, David Bowie) and Aaron Sterling (Maggie Rogers, Lana Del Rey) – craft deeply atmospheric music that is equally at home in a sultry lounge as it would be in an arena. With a rhythmic bedrock provided by two of the best drummers alive, Alchemy inhabits a world where expansive vocal melodies soar above churning seas of sub-bass while shimmering synths drift across the horizon.
SideTalker was born out of a meeting of the minds at the appropriately expansive Gorge Amphitheatre in George, WA. Terranova and Jones were both navigating shifting trajectories in their respective creative journeys, and the chemistry was immediate.
Terranova had spent time touring in the Americana realm, sharing stages with the likes of Marcus King Band, Donovan Frankenreiter, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, and more. Jones had his skills honed both in the studio and on the road, having toured with Fischerspooner, Santigold, and others.
