Saskatoon's acclaimed indie rock trio Close Talker is poised for a triumphant return with their upcoming EP 'The Sprawl', set for release on March 22nd this year. The project marks a fresh chapter in the band's evolution, highlighting their growth as songwriters and musicians.

Fans eagerly anticipating the new EP can already experience some of its bold, sonic direction with the band recently releasing the single and video 'Tall Boy', which is available now. At the heart of 'The Sprawl' lies a deeply personal narrative. The EP chronicles the transformative years between 2013 and 2019, a time marked by both soaring successes and the challenges that accompany a dedicated artistic life. This journey profoundly influenced the band's musical trajectory.

Close Talker, comprised of Will Quiring, Matthew Kopperud, and Christopher Morien, has steadily built a loyal fanbase thanks to their infectious live energy and thoughtful music. They've toured extensively, garnering praise from major tastemakers including NPR, Billboard, Clash, Spin, Q Magazine, and Consequence of Sound.

The band solidified their place in the indie rock landscape with their 2019 album 'How Do We Stay Here?' hailed by NPR Music as "really thoughtful and hypnotic," the album garnered over 3 million streams and support from SiriusXM’s ‘The Verge’ and CBC. A career highlight came in 2020 when Close Talker took home the title of Alternative Artist of the Year at the Saskatchewan Music Awards.
