TXBrewsandTunes Exclusive SXSW Interview: Emily Bell & The Talkbacks


Emily Bell & The Talkbacks

So Emily Bell & The Talkbacks have already played their SXSW shows for 2017! But since they are a local band we thought we would share their interview after the crazyness that is SXSW. We went out to Big Picture Media day at San Jac Saloon just to meet Emily Bell & The Talkbacks.  Check out our interview with one of our new favorite Austin bands:

Emily Bell & The Talkbacks

If the interview was not enough. Here is a little more background on one of our favorite Austin bands. Emily Bell & The Talkbacks style is rock & roll to its core.  Their latest song Goddess of Destruction is the first single off of her KALI EP (which is now available for preorder!!!) If you heard our interview with her, she goes in depth about how she came up with the inspiration for the song and its a pretty amazing story to say the least.  If you have not had the chance to hear her music before? I suggest you go to her Spotify page and listen to “Can’t Talk Back” & “Goddess of Destruction,” you will have those songs favorited before those two songs end! Check out her song- “Can’t Talk Back” and tell me you didn’t play it at least 3 times in a row!

Where can you catch Emily Bell & The Talkbacks?  If you were not able to catch her during SXSW or happened to miss her. Follow her tour dates here to catch her in a city near you:
