Housewives - "Speak to Me"

Hailing from London, Housewives may have just released the most challenging song we've ever covered here at If It's Too Loud... "Speak to Me" is nearly impossible to define, so I'm going to lean on their press release a bit. The press release describes the song as "... a synthesized junkyard collage...," which I do agree with. However, while the song is very synth heavy, and it is quite electronic, there is a bit more of an organic noise element to it. I try to describe it that way, since while I'm not a big electronic music guy, I do find quite a bit to enjoy here. Don't get me wrong: "Speak to Me" is not a song for everyone. In fact, it's most likely not for most people. But even if you hate this song you won't be able to deny that it's at least unique and interesting. And sometimes that's just what you need to listen to.

You can watch the video for "Speak to Me" below. The video will mess with your reality as much as the song, so try to give both a shot. The single is out now on Blank Editions and will be included on a new album due out in early 2019. For more on Housewives, be sure to check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
