Violent is an urgent, visionary record which finds one-man pop operation
Talk Less Say More (London resident Matthew Jennings) laying down a
marker for how daring pop can sound in 2014. Ten discombobulatingly
anthemic songs are laced with an exuberant lyrical and sonic wit, yet
are held together by a distant sense of dread.
Despite this uncanny darkness, it’s clear than an enormous amount of fun
has been had making Violent. The instrumental pallet is huge, with
(amongst much else) vocoder rubbing up against timpani; brass duelling
with guzheng; fretless bass, slap bass, double-tracked guitars and
triple-tracked sax. Such exuberance remains in the service of the song
though - and it’s testament to Jennings’ songwriting ability that he can
make the listener laugh out loud one second and despair the next.
Opener ‘When The Storm Came’ hits with all the invention of Fleetwood
Mac’s Tusk and explores an evental eruption from multiple temporalities:
a cubist-pop take on a relationship, revolution or both? ‘Cantona’
weaves together a chance encounter with the
footballer-cum-actor-philosopher with a painfully honest account of
embodied sadness: a dystopian glam romp befitting of its titular hero.
‘Becoming An Island’ considers time and memory with washes of gorgeous
ondes martenot and woodwind. ‘Yeah, That’s Right’ sees soaring guitars
propose some kind of cosmic acceptance.
The second in a proposed trilogy (begun by England Without Rain),
Violent combines restless experimentation with stunning songcraft.
Crammed with sonic thrills and thematic ambiguity, it’s another triumph
for Talk Less, Say More and we’re honoured to be releasing it.
