July Talk bare “Identical Love,” an inky, acutely romantic new song that explores the transformative experience of love with candor and craving. Released with an equally unguarded video, which premiered via Consequence of Sound’s Origins feature, “Identical Love” carries forward July Talk’s message of surrender and renewal that shapes their forthcoming album, Pray For It 
“You know this one thing. You know you will have to challenge your love if you want it to challenge you back,” writes co-lead vocalist Peter Dreimanis. “Your love should change you, surprise and rearrange you. But you have to challenge it to become a transformative love that makes those around you feel remarkable and new, like absolutely anything can happen at any time.”
“This song came to me the day I bought a new guitar in Brooklyn in the summer of 2018. I couldn’t stop singing these words over and over as I strummed the old second hand strings. I love everything about my partner, including the fact she isn’t straight, and this was a time where we had decided it was important to honour that queerness in our relationship. It was a time when we started to realize that the shape of our love could transform in whatever way we wanted it to. It had grown strong enough to be challenged,” shares Dreimanis.

“Identical Love,” along with the swirling ballet of “Pay For It” and the surrealist snarl of “Governess Shadow,” show the many sides of Pray For It. July Talk’s third album is due July 10, 2020 via Sleepless in Canada/ BMG Worldwide.

AND WATCH THE BAND’S LIVE FROM ISOLATION VERSIONS:

July Talk stormed in with the flinty radio-ready rock of their debut, followed by the volatile siren songs of Touch, an album of sawtoothed pop + convulsing tension. For album three, the band cracks their equilibrium open to find a thrilling new balance in asymmetry. With Pray For It, July Talk commits to the possibility of alternate endings, acknowledging the power of vulnerability as a way to begin again. July Talk’s path has never been through fitting in. Their music, viscerally, blisteringly hot, sliced right through the alternative and rock charts for multiple number one singles. Their churning and fiercely physical performances make spaces hiss and hum, spit and seethe in glorious, artful abandon. 
July Talk continues to rise with purpose and poise. From the start, the band has fostered a community of creators and collaborators on stage, on film and among those also challenging systemic inequities. The band has also grown in their roles as advocates of an urgent and fundamental music industry recalibration, through curatorial partnerships with festivals and by defining their own parameters for safer spaces at rock shows. 
Pray For It was produced by Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, The Drones, Julia Jacklin), Graham Walsh (Holy Fuck, Metz), David Plowman (Brendan Canning, Young Clancy, Michael Rault), Milan Sarkadi (Mute Choir, Said The Whale) and Ben Fox (Film Composer). It was mixed by Rob Schnapf (Beck, Cat Power, Andy Shauf).
