Listener Speaks

When your iPod’s full of heavy bass lines, drum machines, and vocoded melody lines, one often forgets about the beauty and impact of spoken word.

Listener (AKA Atlanta-native Dan Smith & bandmate Chris Nelson) creates a new kind of sound they like to call “talk music”.

Laying rhythmic speech reminiscent of the style of beat poets or SLAM poets on song, listeners of Listener are treated to insanely amazing lyrics presented like a train of thought with a soundtrack. It’s just great writing and it’s different from anything I’ve heard before.

Talk music is not quite rap, not quite rock; something new yet familiar. Dan might perhaps be a pioneer in a new genre of music.
