Jive Talk is the newest sensation out of Nashville, TN. Praised by Mike Grimes
(owner of Basement East & Grimey’s Records) as “retro nerd-core supreme
mother f*ckers,” the group is quickly gaining attention and captivating audiences
with their powerful performances. The collective infuses raucous indie rock with
80s synth pop, drawing comparisons where Arcade Fire meets The National at
the intersection of David Bowie and Tears for Fears.
Acme Radio hails them as “a breath of fresh air for Music City. In a place filled
with thousands of local musicians attempting to turn their passion into a career,
they stand out amongst the crowd. Spirited, care-free, and lovable, seeing them
live is surely a special experience”
Forged in the fall of 2018, Ballastella emerged in the serendipitous wake of adolescence. The boys, Ty Reed, Liam Roberts, Ben Hastie and John Faralli, all come from eclectic backgrounds, delving into the bizarre and the funky with their rare breed of progressive post-grunge/psychedelic alternative rock. The band plans to continue challenging the conventionality of pop music while maintaining their grip on stank-nasty grooves and melodies.
