July Talk is the Toronto born alternative rock band made up of singers, Peter Dreimanis and Leah Fay, bassist Josh Warburton, guitarist Ian Docherty and drummer Danny Miles. Hilltop Views interviewed Dreimanis, Fay and Warburton.HILLTOP VIEWS: How did July Talk get started?WARBURTON: We kind of all started playing together. It was just really relaxed and chill. And there wasn’t a lot of expectation for the project. It was just kind of like ‘Oh this is a great thing to go a couple of times a week and lay a set, drink a magnum of wine and be saucy and be silly.’ Then out of nowhere it seemed to be doing really well.”HV: How do you describe your music style?FAY: Simply put, we always just call it rock and roll I think cause it’s the easiest way to describe not only the sound but also the fact that we like to go crazy onstage. The live performance is a massive part of what we do and what makes us us.DREIMANIS: We’re very committed to that purist feeling of being onstage together with sort of loud amps and feeling of standing in the middle of the hurricane. That’s the feeling you get when you’re hacking away at a telecaster.HV: How do you feel you have grown as artists and as a band from 2012 to 2016?FAY: You can’t do anything for 4 years without maturing and learning and kind of completely morphing into a different person and, for us, a different project. Hopefully it will just keep happening, keep morphing.
