Talk Less Say More is Jell who is Matthew Jennings who is Talk Less Say More.

Based in London, Talk Less Say More makes music that defies genres with aplomb while keeping the artistry and visionary power of ‘The Pop Song’ firmly in mind. From experimental hip-hop to electronica, from ambience to the crunch and rush of loud guitars, Talk Less Say More is a true electronic auteur who combines stunning futuristic production with lyrics that are by turns humorous, insightful and riotously clever. From love and its loss to reflections on the metaphysical, little passes TLSM’s careful attention.

Violent

Violent

An urgent, visionary record which lays down a marker for how daring pop can sound in 2014. Ten discombobulatingly anthemic songs laced with an exuberant lyrical and sonic wit as well as flashes of darkness – moments of disquieting melancholy built on hazy recollection of times past.

England Without RainAvailable for Purchase

England Without Rain

37 minutes of postmodern pop perfection. England Without Rain bursts with vitality, oozing with surreal mirages and sultry pleasures, yearning for the release of a storm. Joy, sadness and frustration embodied in shimmering guzheng, exuberant synths, thumping Kompakt beats and Fleetwood Mac guitar duels.

Proof Rock

Proof Rock

Eliot-step with a chaser of crunching guitars. Skipping drums and bass ruminate over matters mundane and metaphysical, splicing genres with modernist aplomb like Thomas Stearns gone futuristic lit-pop.

I Don’t Know Where I Am, I Don’t Know What I’m Doing

I Don’t Know Where I Am, I Don’t Know What I’m Doing

The companion piece to last year’s critically acclaimed Go Lucky, IDKWIAIDKWID brings tracks recorded over the same time, remixes and fresh material. Bursting with sonic inventiveness, lyrical cleverness and possessing a still beating pop heart, this is a release to treasured as summer fades.

‘It’s About Time’

‘It’s About Time’

Talk Less, Say More once again effortlessly connects the abstract with the concrete in this album of glinting futuristic glitched hip-hop. Raps about quantum mechanics, suicidal mathematicians, Zeno’s paradoxes as well as home towns and girls being, you know, sometimes quite difficult to understand. Wonderfully skewed, weird and utterly unique, something like Timbaland meets the Copenhagen Interpretation with Kool Keith on vocals.

Go Lucky

An intensely personal record that falls into love’s sunlit glories as well as the strange chasms opened when it departs. A celebration and an elegy, this is the height of the best traditions of experimental pop: cyclic guitars, minimal techno throb, snapping drums over impressionist cello and joyous poundshop electro.

Ideal Forms

Ideal Forms

“All music…must be the earthly representation of the music there is in the rhythm of the Ideal Realm.” The realm of pure forms described in two tracks of beautifully spartan Platonic ambience.

‘It’s About Time’

‘It’s About Time’

Abstract hip-hop that considers quantum mechanics, the nature of time and space and the problems of life and love caused by these quandaries. Schrödinger’s rap, McTaggart-hop, Zeno crunk.
