TALK TIME is an indie pop duo from East LA, the collaboration of singer-songwriter Edson Choi and multi-instrumentalist Mike Nissen. The duo's unique perspective draws from Choi's "third culture kid" background, and filters it through their laid-back Californian sensibility. With an earnest lyrical style and big hooky choruses, their sound lives inside a lush world of textures and riffs. Since debuting in 2018, TALK TIME has been featured by KCRW, KROQ, and Conan O'Brien, among others. Like their debut, the second EP is produced and engineered by Math Bishop (Silversun Pickups, The Killers) and is set for a Summer 2021 release. “...the crew manages to pull off that anthem-like quality akin to Future Islands’ synth pop, while infusing that unmistakable California glow — a special light somewhere between neon and the soft pink on the horizon.” --Culture Collide “...a nostalgic filled, engulfing song that showcases the retro-styled pop sensibilities of the group.” --Earmilk “Year of Self is a killer first single from a band making pop music perfectly suited for today’s appetite.” --Nic Harcourt (KCRW, 885fm) “I'm obsessed...I can't wait to hear more on this new project...I'm really digging this...The song is just super catchy...” --Tobi Lynn (ALT98.7, Sirius XMU) “Blending elements of Golden Age indie with the updated tones of dream pop, Talk Time bring us ‘Desperate Weather’ to cool off our overheated bones.” --All Things Go
