The Oakland based shoegaze trio There’s Talk ride some golden ratio of downcast melodies, spectral build and wash and expertly done electronic percussion and synth shadings on their single “Golden”. Olivia Lee’s vocals take center stage here, a deep and rich pull into depths where a bottom cannot be certain, her lyrics focus on “family, both chosen and blood and divine coincidence.”  Synths and huge swells of guitar hold the inertia of Lee’s words in place as the track marks that golden balance between wonder and melancholy.
