Strange Talk, the Melbourne, Australia based alt-pop four-piece will release their self-produced Wind-up Records debut album Cast Away on April 29, 2014. All songs were mixed by Tony Hoffer (M83, Phoenix) with the exception of “Climbing Walls,” “Eskimo Boy” and “Is It Real?” which were mixed by Eliot James (Bloc Party, Two Door Cinema Club).

Rolling Stone (Australia) gave Cast Away a four out of five star review calling it "Equal parts Cut Copy and Daft Punk with pinches of Eighties pop, Strange Talk's album is a fizzy cocktail of synths, breathy vocals and tinny drums."  Billboard said, “Stateside fans of stylish alt-pop acts like Empire of the Sun, Cut Copy and Royksopp will be getting very familiar with Strange Talk... Bursting with ornate synthesizers and warm vocals…”

They’ve played such festivals as Parklife, Stereosonic, Future Music, Soundscape and Falls, opened for Foster The People, the Rapture, Neon Indian and Marina and The Diamonds.  Now Strange Talk will make their U.S. album debut with Cast Away.

TRACK LISTING: 1. Cast Away 2. Falling In Love 3. Picking Up All The Pieces 4. Eskimo Boy 5. Young Hearts 6. Another Day 7. So So LaLa 8. Is It Real? 9. Climbing Walls 10. Come Back Home 11. Morning Sun 12. Wanted (Dead or Alive)
