After the release of their Remote EP in February, Wallows has made a triumphant return with their latest single “I Don’t Want to Talk.” The new song, produced by Ariel Rechtshaid is accompanied by the coming-of-age inspired music video directed by Jason Lester.
The track is a punchy indie-pop anthem reminiscent of their earlier works like “Pleaser” but has been obviously influenced by their Remote EP with the inclusion of unique synths both during the chorus and hidden throughout the track. The track as a whole is brilliantly executed and I personally can’t wait to hear the rest of this album. The band has been on a hot streak ever since the Spring EP and “I Don’t Want to Talk” proves that Wallows has no intention of slowing down.
In a press release, frontman Dylan Minnette said, “’I Don’t Want to Talk’ is ultimately a song about insecurities. Not only in yourself, but in this case, particularly in a relationship. It centers around the fear of being away from someone for too long and that ultimately allowing the other person’s head to be turned by someone else, and instead of expressing those fears, completely shutting down and not wanting to talk about it at all.”
In addition to the new single, Wallows has announced their Tell Me That It’s Over tour which starts in Seattle on April 1, 2022. Tickets go on sale October 8 and you can view all the tour locations below.
