Let’s talk about ‘I Don’t Want to Talk’

Indie boy band Wallows return with their new single, ‘I Don’t Want to Talk.’ With its fast-paced beat, punctuated by playful harmonica, the track is reminiscent of the perfect road trip, but also takes pains to appeal to the indie teen demographic.

The Twilight Sad – Nobody Wants to be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave

ronically, making music for a living doesn’t seem to have raised the spirits of The Twilight Sad at all. Interviews with the band portray them as well-meaning guys, working to reach as large an audience as possible, working to improve their craft and provide an objective medium for the listener to experience their pain through their intense gigs. Well meaning and mopey.
