Three years after Life After Youth, Canadian singer-songwriter and musician Elizabeth Powell returns with her project Land of Talk. Indistinct Conversations is the new album which will be out on July 31st via Saddle Creek. All 11 songs on Indistinct Conversations were written by Powell, who also produced and arranged the tracks together with bandmates Mark “Bucky” Wheaton (drums/keys) and Christopher McCarron (bass).
The album is a dreamier, more acoustic-driven work than prior Land of Talk releases; it was recorded in Wheaton’s home studio, and has the intimacy of a private document. The songs were created as a therapeutic space where Powell could retreat from the world. We already shared “Weight of That Weekend”, “Diaphanous”, “Footnotes” and “Compelled”; “Now You Want to Live in the Light” is a new excerpt. Check the official video below.
“In developing the visual image for ‘Now You Want To Live In The Light,’ I anchored myself in the pulse of the song,” explains director Lara Kramer of the video. “I wanted to mobilize in ways we think, feel, and do in our self-confronting states.”
