  • Frontwoman Chrissy Costanza explained the song's meaning to Kerrang! "It's about those sweet-talker guys who everyone knows are full of s--t," she said. "'Talk' is my way of saying, 'I've heard all of this before, let's just call it what it is.'"
  • The staff at Kerrang voted this their Song of the Year for 2015. They said: "Against The Current were one of 2015's biggest breakouts and 'Talk' was one of their best moments on their Gravity EP. Bristling with attitude but utterly infectious, this is the spark to write a glorious 2016 for Against The Current.
