Let’s Talk Daggers are a three piece experiemental post-hardcore band from Eastbourne, UK featuring Will Gunson, Jim Windless and Steven Berwick. Despite originating from a coastal town that’s more often associated as a retirement destination rather than a musical hub, the band play a style of music that couldn’t be any more of an antithesis to their sleepy backdrop. Loud, fast and frantic, their sound is an unnerving blend of genres and styles that would come across as disjointed and cocophonous if attempted by most bands, incorporating elements of art-punk, hardcore, jazz and metal.

The band’s self-titled, debut EP was recorded with producer Nick Kinnish (Architects, Johnny Truant, Blakfish, Throats) in August 2009 and introduced a talented, young group that aren’t afraid of experimentation and who, refreshingly, don’t feel the need to fit into a particular scene, instead opting for a writing process that simply involves “putting all of our favourite sounds into each and every song.” In January 2010, Let’s Talk Daggers returned to Serafina Studios to record the four tracks that would make up Blankets. Marking a noticeable progression for the band, the EP demonstrates a more focussed and mature sound to their previous effort, without losing any of the originality and fearlessness that makes them such an exciting prospect for the future.

Third EP from one of the most underrated bands in the UK. Let's Talk Daggers have always been impossible to pigeon-hole, and Winter is no different, but amongst a schizophrenic blend of genres is some of Daggers' most accessible and catchy (if you can call it that) material to date. By far the best thing they've done.
