Minneapolis’ Atmosphere has shared another single off their forthcoming Talk Talk EP, the instant classic “Traveling Forever,” paired with a stark, black-and-white visual directed by ZooDeVille and Slug. The new single is preceded by the double single “Talk Talk (feat. Bat Flower),” and “Rotary Telephone.”
The genesis of the Talk Talk EP was during a recording session for the title track, “Talk Talk”, which originally appeared on their latest album, So Many Other Realities Exist Simultaneously. On the forthcoming EP, the Minneapolis legends dart across threads of space-time to grab hold of the one where they became titans of the electro-rap genre that was foundational to their youths. By evoking acts like Kraftwerk and Egyptian Lover, Atmosphere makes visions of the future from four decades ago seem new once again.
The Talk Talk EP is available for pre-order here. Additionally, a limited vinyl variant, cassettes and exclusive merch items can all be pre-ordered via atmospheresucks.com. The limited vinyl variant features alternative cover art and is also a zoetrope – as the record spins, sequenced images will appear and listeners will be able to see a moving picture in the vinyl.
The pioneering hip-hop duo will continue their nonstop 2023 touring schedule, kicking of their Tour De Friends headline dates supported by HEBL & NOFUN!, which includes their first hometown shows of the year, performing at Minneapolis’ First Avenue on Nov 24th (Sold Out) and Saint Paul’s Palace Theatre on Nov 25th.
