South Carolina alternative-pop band Small Talks have debuted a video for their newest single “Quiet Sounds”.
The single is the epic follow-up to the band’s debut EP Until It Turns To Petals, released late last year through Common Ground Records. Written by lead singer-songwriter, Cayley Spivey, the track explores the feeling of building intimacy with someone you care about and, “having someone close enough to me that knows how to calm my anxieties,” explains Spivey.
“’Quiet Sounds’ is a reflection of a ‘you and me against the world’ relationship,” Spivey elaborates. “Despite all the good things about love, sharing your life with someone can cause you to change your routine to make room for someone else. I wanted to bring that up because individuality is very important to me. It’s an internal battle for me because I fall in love easily and I hyper-focus on that person’s happiness, but in the back of my mind I wonder if I’d be able to grow more as an individual if I didn’t have to consider other people when making choices for myself and my life. I called the song ‘Quiet Sounds’ because despite the craving for total independence, at the end of the day or in the quiet moments, it isn’t freedom on my mind. It’s the people I love.”
