Loose Talk Costs Lives are a Leeds band who are peddling this Afrobeat-inflected indie rock that's so fashionable currently. I guess the most obvious and lazy comparison here has to be Vampire Weekend. I bet they get that a lot but whatever, they're making slightly smug indie pop with a nod to Fela Kuti; who am I supposed to compare them to, Siouxsie and the Banshees? To their credit, this is a very slick recording and what they lack in ideas they make up for in tunes, and all four of these songs are pretty bouncy and inoffensive. Dunno what else I'm supposed to say about them without it just sounding like an attempt to describe Vampire Weekend, though..."they're like if Paul Simon fronted the Talking Heads". They mention Steve Reich as an influence in their press release, which is baffling because this music shows no audible signs of being influenced by Steve Reich. Jaunty and polished stuff, though.
