MISS GRIT SHARES NEW SINGLE “THE BRIDE” VIA CLASH | DEBUT EP TALK TALK OUT 1/11
“Incoming EP ‘Talk Talk’ is their boldest step yet, matching astute songwriting to daring sonic flourishes, recalling everyone from Sharon van Etten to LCD Soundsystem in the process.”
“Sohn’s clear vocal drives deceptively gentle synth-backed ditties into surges of heavier guitars reminiscent of early Yeah Yeah Yeahs.”
– Line Of Best Fit
“Sohn’s quiet-storm vox against cataclysmic synthesizers creates a soundscape that is both emotionally raw and dynamically energizing, a perfect blend of introspection and catharsis.”
– The Deli NYC
“Miss Grit is a thrilling new project that takes its cues from a bevy of indie heavy-hitters and turns it all into something all the more exciting. On her new single ‘Talk Talk,’ which also happens to be the title track of her upcoming debut EP, Sohn keys into both a sound and state of mind that will make her one to watch in the new year.”
– The 405
Today, NYC-based guitarist and indie rock outfit Miss Grit shares her new single “The Bride.” This is the second single off her forthcoming debut EP, Talk Talk, due out next week. Yesterday, Clash premiered the track, praising, “A jagged, sparse, but eerily infectious nugget, it’s shot through with conviction.” “The Bride” is out now on DSPs, and is currently being featured on Spotify’s coveted All New Indie playlist.
Talk Talk began in an empty dorm. It was written over the course of a lonely January by Miss Grit front woman, Margaret Sohn. After her demos were recorded, Sohn approached her former bandmate, Charles Mueller, about working on this EP with her. Mueller took on the roll of co-producer, engineer, and mixer for this EP. The rest of the year involved ironing out and developing the demos, Zoltán Sindhu (bass) and Greg Tock (drums) at Virtue and Vice, a studio where Sohn previously worked as an intern, and a two-month hiatus while Sohn studied in Shanghai. She finally finished recording everything else for the EP in Mueller’s home studio with his cat Anton.
Talk Talk isn’t necessarily a breakup album, but an album about Sohn being lost when it comes to relationships and love. It takes on social anxiety and the unrealistic views of love that society and movies ingrain into girls’ minds. On a more personal note, it’s also about Margaret’s struggle with “all or nothing” emotions when it comes to relationships, and the desire to dry up those feelings into something less extreme and intense. With inspirations from LCD Soundsystem’s satisfying synths and St. Vincent’s brutal guitars, Miss Grit has come up with an innocently deceiving sound that is “Talk Talk.”
