    Black Midi have released a new song “Talking Heads,” their latest release on Rough Trade Records, which signed the band at the end of January.

    For the uninitiated, the buoyant, chameleonic track is a great introduction to the intense, off-kilter Black Midi sound. The London band built up a following off the strength of their electrifying live shows—even before they got on social media.

    “Talking Heads”—which doesn’t appear to have any relation to the influential David Byrne outfit, though Black Midi are reportedly fans—follows last month’s song, “Crow’s Perch,” and the Speedway EP, which they released upon signing to Rough Trade.
