Black + white and vividly complex, Pray For It is about breaking patterns of action and reaction. Resolute in their vision and unafraid to escape the cage, July Talk’s path has never been through fitting in. Their music, viscerally, blisteringly hot, sliced right through the alternative and rock charts for multiple number one singles. Their churning and fiercely physical performances make spaces hiss and hum, spit and seethe in glorious, artful abandon.
Pray For It commits to the possibility of alternate endings in the sanctuary of humility and reckons with vulnerability as a superpower. In opening themselves up to the unknown, the uncomfortable and the unfamiliar, July Talk performs a radical sacrificial act, surrendering themselves to the higher powers – sacred, ecological or even intergalactic – as a way to begin again.
