Swindon indie-pop band Talk in Code set to release new single

Swindon’s 80s-flavoured indie pop band, Talk in Code are gearing up to release their new single ‘Young Love’s Dream’ next month. 

Friday, 11 February will see ‘Young Love’s Dream’ released across all digital platforms, ahead of the band’s new album ‘The Big Screen’, which will drop on 15 April.

Described as ‘Pet Shop Boys meets The 1975’, the band are said to be continuing with strong momentum from 2021, having headlined three of Wiltshire’s largest music events - M for Festival, Concert At The Kings, and Swindon Shuffle.

Talk In Code have also appeared on the national circuit, sharing billings with Scouting For Girls, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Craig David, SAS Band, 10cc and Lindisfarne.

A spokesperson for the band said: “With a bright, uplifting vibe, ‘Young Love’s Dream’ explores the themes of youthful hope and possibility before life presents its many twists and turns and we go our separate ways from those we love…or do we?

“With accessibility in mind, it is fair to say Talk In Code’s sound spreads across many genres. Having accumulated 180,000 Spotify streams and being added to over 700 Spotify playlists, Talk In Code have also been well supported by international, national and regional radio including college/independent stations in the US, Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing, BBC Radio Wiltshire and Swindon 105.5.

“In addition, they’ve enjoyed great press coverage from online platforms such as Q Music, CLOUT, Indie Is Not A Genre, Indie Buddie, The Ocelot, Swindon Link and Devizine.”

Talk In Code will play an album launch show at Level 3, Swindon, on Saturday, 16 April. Tickets can be found at
