Talk in Code



What started with more Americana-type acoustic foundations, later transformed into the synth-led sleek indie you hear today marking the evolution of Talk In Code. The name is derived from the idea that everyone relates to songs differently, having their very own meaning to cherish.

Residing near the heart of the South West in the UK, making up the quartet are Chris Stevens (vocals & guitars), Al Sneddon (guitars, keys & programming), Mark Turner (bass, keys & programming) and Jamie O’Sullivan (drums) - all bringing their many influences to the table delivering the trademark sound of Talk In Code.

The band don’t cite whole collections of any one artists work as influences, yes they have their favourites but it’s more individual songs that carry weight from way back to present day chart toppers!  Recorded by Geoff Swan (Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, Haim), the band’s debut album didn’t take long to attract some heat being featured by Q Music’s Track Of The Day alongside Green Man Publications and Record Of The Day – a blog for the music industry.

In addition TIC have been well supported by various radio stations up and down the UK most notably BBC Introducing and BBC Radio Wiltshire. Such attention has served as a vehicle to progress on the live circuit where the band have played alongside acts such as Catfish & The Bottlemen, Jesus Jones, My Life Story, Embrace and Toploader through to 80’s sensations Marc Almond, Howard Jones and Go West!   Festival appearances at Walled Garden, Jurassic Fields, Lechlade, Osfest and Wychwood have added to their ever-growing profile.

Talk In Code have just released their second album, RESOLVE. Recorded and produced at Studio 6 in Wootton Bassett by Stu McKay and Talk In Code, RESOLVE is a collection of ten tracks written and recorded over the past two years. The album is a depiction of the bands journey to date. Talk In Code blend dirty guitars and shimmering synth soundscapes with melodic storytelling lyrics that will make you dance!
