“These dudes know how to make a tapestry move, if you know what I mean.” – Rip City Review


Talkative was born in a noise dream. They were originally a performance-art noise duo from Eugene, Oregon. Their shows were psychadelic and intense, focusing on loops, effects, and delay bent vocals.


After moving to Portland, the band evolved their sound with effects soaked guitars, drums, and keyboards. The sound of Talkative starts in a flurry of digital noise that eventually finds itself ripping through guitar riffs before shapeshifting into rolling drums and sequencers. “Light Years” (one of their full lengths) shows Talkative’s ability to bathe in reverb and rebirth itself in melody with the help of guitar, bass, and drums. Their current live set up includes live visuals, booming drums and bass, wild vocals and ripping guitars.
