The London-based, internationally assembled female instrumental four-piece, Los Bitchos, announce their highly anticipated second album, Talkie Talkie, out 30 August 2024 via City Slang. Pre-Order HERE.

A sonic adventure which transports the listener into a world where funk, disco, Latin and Turkish rhythms collide in a euphoric fusion, Talkie Talkie is glistening with charisma, sonic experimentation and a puckish spirit. Named after a fictional club of the same name, Talkie Talkie is a late-night paradise brimming with freedom and possibility; a place where partygoers can escape reality in the dance or daydream along to the invigorating soundscapes. If Los Bitchos’ electrifying 2022 debut album Let the Festivities Begin! was the rowdy build up to the big night out, then Talkie Talkie is the Technicolor explosion of the dancefloor.

At the centre of Talkie Talkie is a vivid cinematic universe that takes inspiration from the band’s favourite aesthetic era: the 80s. Think less self-serious men and gated reverb and more campy, hi-fi pop songwriting that glistens with moxie. The four-piece especially tapped into the sonic innovation happening during that period, where analogue and digital techniques collided to create polished texture and depth. Talkie Talkie’s recording process happened over a short but intense burst of time in London’s RAK Studios and Lightship 95. Over just one month, the band hunkered down with producer Oli Barton-Wood (Wet Leg, Nilüfer Yanya) and engineer Giles Barrett (Shabaka Hutchings, Ezra Collective) to render the demos in full colour.
