Hidden Gem: SPEAK *synth-rock-pop

SPEAK is a band from Austin, Texas with a smooth rock/pop sound. I have only heard 2 songs from them but believe they display mainstream potential. Their debut full-length album, I Believe In Everything, comes out September 27 through Modern Art Records/Atlantic.

Here’s my two favorites from SPEAK, “Carrie” and “Digital Love”, which is a thrilling cover of the Daft Punk classic.

SPEAK is just wrapping up a 13-state/17 show trek with Tally Hall. Those dates come on the heels of SPEAK’s first European tour and a highly buzzed-about performance at SXSW.

I Believe In Everything was produced by the highly sought after Chris “Frenchie” Smith (JET, Dandy Warhols).

The 11-song disc features the smash-hit “Carrie”, which is now available for free download on, as well as for purchase on iTunes.

Always striving for original, innovative melodies, SPEAK garnered noteworthy attention with their 2010 debut EP, Hear Here and received overwhelming industry praise.
Austin Chronicle asserted they are “poised to change the musical landscape” and gave the quartet 4 stars, the publication’s highest rating, while The A.V. Club declared it “smooth electronic seduction, spiked with a little venom.”

Their powerhouse synth-rock-pop anthems and infectious melodies have earned them honors like “Best New Band” at Austin Music Awards where they were presented the award by the Talking Heads.
