Pretty cool groove in this tune.  To be fair, that sort of drumbeat and tempo existed before Talking Heads started recording music.  Look up The Silver Apples and other "experimental" bands from the 1960s as well as the solo stuff by Brian Eno, who produced "Remain In Light".  These guys seem to have a lot of influences, including the ones mentioned in the comments.

Good to know.  Popular music is like all newer ideas, path dependent.  The best musicians listen widely where most listeners never venture.

Another RP discovery.  The good hits just keep on coming.

One of those songs that...sometimes I PSD this bloody song & other times I love this bloody song.
Gave it a 7 so I guess it is love tonight.

This is getting to much play time on the RP rotation. Time to change it up.

It is that relentless driving beat that they overlay the song's melody and lyrics on. They appear to not be in sync or even the same time signature.

Radiohead do this and so did Portishead back in the day. I am not sure about any similarities to Talking Heads though?

Anyway, you just have to adjust your melodic ear sensors to accept the non-normal :)

I was busy washing my dishes when this came up... I thought to myself "who on earth could this be?"... "who could be segued with Talking Heads?"... And then I thought... "no one esle could possibly do Talking Heads".

So I left the dishing dancing in the scullery and came to discover that "Shearwater" can apparently do TH.

I know it's a bit cheap to just quote lyrics but hell:
Falling lights on the miracles of a golden age
Blackened sounds of the millions in the streets today
Where some people turn on themselves
Some hang around for an age
Some get paralyzed

love the music and i'm gripped by the words.

Not quite in that league, maybe  more Talk-Talk influences... but interesting and quite intense nonetheless...

I'm tempted to agree with the two previous comments.  Overlooked band (certainly in the UK) with a great catalogue.

of course you'd put this adjacent to the Talking Heads. Makes perfect sense.

Such shimmering ebb and flow of rhythms and styles in this! This time, I got strong hints of the eerie piano/ keys of Depeche Mode!

Wow. Nice. I think I will need to purchase.

Really dig this one - always grabs my attention in a good way. I've gone deeper into this band and they are very good overall. If you like this I suggest checking them out.
Posted: Oct 10, 2016 14:29

Not sure how to rate this one; there's no number for "annoying." The drummer just sets my teeth on edge. I can recognize a Shearwater song in the first few measures.

Yeah, it's definitely an homage to "Cross-Eyed and Painless." In an interview, the lead singer said Talking Heads is one of the bands he's been listening to a lot lately.

THIS is one trippy track, for sure... Reminds me of She's Hearing Voices by Block Party, along with tasty bits of Kaiser Chiefs, and the whole thing has even Floydian shades of tape-edit-loop tricks and sound engineering magic. One of the big surprises for me of late...
