Kansas City’s Shy Boys have entertained pretty much anyone who’s heard them since they started almost a decade ago. In the time between then and now they’ve grown their sound by leaps and bounds. Now with a new album Talk Loud coming next Friday, their new single “Talk Loud” delivers more enjoyment with a more expanse in their sound.
While this is definitely a Shy Boys song, the synths that drive it are different than what you may be used to. While it’s a gamble, mixing synths alongside a catchy drum beat and those falsetto vocals pays off in more ways than one. The arrangements play well together, the pace of the song is upbeat and the synths themselves have an eighties touch that doesn’t sound out of date. The end result is a bop that stays with you well after you hear it.
The video for “Talk Loud” can be viewed above or on YouTube. The song is ready to stream on all streaming sites. The album Talk Loud is available to preorder from Polyvinyl Records ahead of its September 25 release.
