Single Review: Victoria Sponge – Talk About Tonight

‘Talk About Tonight’ is a perfect slice of ear-catching attitude-laden indie rock. This is the second track from Glasgow-based Victoria Sponge’s October EP Filthy Pure. Lead singer Chris Irvine’s vocals lend a certain swagger to the track, whilst the band have proven once again that they can create a pretty decent melody.

With each new track, Victoria Sponge seem to be evolving their sound, and as a result it’s hard to pigeonhole them into one particular genre – and why would we want to, eh?

This track leans heavily into some aggressive guitar riffs and furious drumming, whereas previous track ‘Commonplace’ sat comfortably with a sound not dissimilar to early Arctic Monkeys. Definitely crowd-pleasing, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to imagine a crowd nodding to ‘Talk About Tonight’ at, say, King Tut’s. The ominous opening chords offer hints of The Smiths, whilst the lyrics offer plenty of angst and rebellion.
